Local businesses getting ready for Valentine's Day orders

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Love is in the air, and so is the smell of chocolate. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, many of you are making date night plans at a favorite restaurant, or placing orders for gifts for that special someone.

Several businesses in the area are getting ready for deliveries and large crowds. Chocolate covered treats are especially popular during the Valentine's Day holiday.

Edible Arrangements manager, Tricia Sikes says they've got some new goodies in and orders have been back to back.

"Were expecting a really busy season. It's already started out really strong, we've been staying really busy, trying to work ahead of schedule so we can get everybody's orders done and completed on time. We're still expecting a huge crowd Friday because that's Valentine’s Day and we still have a lot of men and ladies that like to wait until the last minute to get their orders in but we're expecting really good numbers,” says Sikes.

She says they started getting orders in as early as last month for arrangements.

You can still place an order for an edible V-Day treat on their website at ediblearrangements.com or by calling (601) 282-5780.
