It's getting down to the wire to pick up that Valentine's Day gift for your special someone but will more people be opting not to shell out this year because of tight budgets? One Washington flower store says their business is doing just fine.

Employees at Linda's Flowers & Gifts were originally nervous tight budgets would take a toll on Valentines Day sales but surprisingly it's been business as usual.

Some price adjustments have been made to accommodate customers as best as possible but so far it doesn't look like they'll be taking a major hit this year.

Store employees plan on working throughout the night to fill orders and will have additional staff on hand for deliveries, a busy evening, they're happy to have during tough economic times.

    V-day is a crock ,conjured up to sell flowers and candy ! I think it should be abolished along with halloween ! As for getting something special for my sweetie, she gets it every time I pay the mortgage and the utility bill and the phone bill , etc, etc .Not buying flowers does not mean I don't love her . Some women get totaly bent out of shape if they do not get a 10 pound box of chocolate and then complain cause they gain weight.

    With the cost of the flowers they didn't have to sell very much to get what they had last year. Flowers and plants grow in the soil, cost of seeds are very cheap. They are making a killing on what grows free. Its not rocket science to know they will get thier money. I don't mind getting flowers picked from my yard.
