Florists staying busy filling Valentine's Day last minute orders

WASHINGTON, NC (WITN) - Florists across Eastern Carolina are staying busy today, filling last minute Valentine's Day orders.

At Linda's Flowers and Gifts in Washington they have been going non-stop since opening up at 8:00 a.m.

A steady stream of people have been coming in for bouquets, gift baskets, and of course, dozens of roses.

Workers say they ordered 2,000 roses for the holiday and most of those had been purchased by early this afternoon.

The shop on East 15th Street says it plans to stay open late tonight, making sure customers are able to pick up their flowers.
