Your Loved Ones May Not Receive Their Flowers on Valentine’s Day 2/14/14
CBS 7 News
Many people we’ve spoken to are saying their flowers leading up to Valentine’s Day were already delayed. That brings up questions for many about flowers getting delivered today.
One local flower shop is trying so hard to avoid missing deliveries that they’ve doubled their staff for the day. Marc Knox in Odessa says through about a month of advertising, they’ve hired a few people weeks ago to answer calls and start getting deliveries together. In addition to that help, they’ve hired fifteen contracted drivers specifically to take out flowers. On top of that, they aren’t accepting any new calls for flowers. It’s first-come-first-serve in the flower shop today. They’re selling the bouquets that they have available but will not be making new orders.
