FLORISTS PREPARE FOR BUSIEST DAY OF THE YEAR 2/13/2018 4:42:35 PM
Valentine's Day is the single busiest day of the year for the floral industry. Floral shops begin production of their flower arrangements close to a week in advance of February the 14th. While some do pre-order by phone or online, the vast majority of sales are made the day of.
Owner of Forest of Flowers in St. Thomas Becky Bryce says she looked at last year's Valentines Day sales in preparation for this year.
Bryce says that the day does bring with it some odd requests, like black roses.
Bryce says that roses make up the majority of their sales. It is also a very busy day for deliveries as Bryce is expecting up to 150 by the time tomorrow is over.
