Valentine's Day Means Big Business for Local Florists


Meridian, Miss. Friday is Valentine's Day, which means Thursday was a day to do last minute shopping for gifts. Flowers and candy top many lists.

Saxon's Flowers and Gifts in Meridian had plenty of balloons and chocolates on hand Thursday. Workers say they actually start preparing for Valentine's Day in November in order to make sure all the proper merchandise is ordered. Like any other holiday, lots of last minute customers are seeking gifts for Valentine's Day.

"Whew," Tineka Maddox exclaims. "It is wild on Valentine's Day, wild on Valentine's Day eve."

"It is a last minute holiday," according to Sabrina Bell at Saxon's. "You would think that everybody knows when the 14th is coming, that you'd be ready."

Crews worked late into the evening on Thursday, preparing for the big day.
