Valentine's Day keeps local florists busy

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Valentine's Day is tomorrow and the florists at Brookshire Brothers are working around the clock to keep up with their customers.

The florists said they were worried about business since Valentine's Day is on Saturday this year, but they said all the early business quickly calmed their fears. One florist said it makes her feel good to be able to turn a few simple flowers into a beautiful arrangement.

"It makes me excited because you come early and you stay late and you get silly at night because you've been up so many hours. We just have a lot of fun," florist Shirley Kirk said.

Kirk said her favorite thing to do is arrange the roses, after all they are the most popular this year. She said for most of her customers, price is not an option.

If you want to get flowers tomorrow, you better hurry, Kirk said she's expecting a busy day Saturday.
