Businesses busy for Valentine's Day


Flower shops are in overdrive this week, whipping up arrangements in record number.

At Connells Maple Lee Flowers in Bexley, workers are busy putting together orders. They expect to have 18 drivers making 530 deliveries on Valentine's Day.

That's 10 times their normal business. They're offering discounted future flowers if people get early deliveries.

“We’re wanting people to order for today and tomorrow, to kind of lighten our load on Thursday,” said Manager Roger Morgan.

Anthony Thomas Chocolates is also prepared. They’ve hand-dipped 53,000 chocolate strawberries which will be available Wednesday and Thursday.
