Last Minute Spending For Valentine's Day

It wasn't quite like last minute Christmas shopping, but there were many Valentine's Day procrastinators looking for the perfect way to say I love you on Monday.

Many stores and flower shops across Eastern Carolina were packed Monday. We found several shoppers at the Greenville Mall willing to spend whatever they had to.

At Balloons Incorporated at the mall, Michael Gray says, "It has been real, real busy. We have sold so much all day, since we opened up. They've just been pouring in. Last minute shoppers." And Gray says his customers are willing to pay a pretty penny for the perfect gift, up to $100 for a stuffed monkey.

Jewelry stores at the mall also say they had a good day, thanks in part to tax returns.

    $100 for a stuffed chimp??? If you pay that much, please put a price tag on yourself that reads "$100 stuffed chump".
