Valentine’s Day is not only a huge day for lovers, but also a big day for businesses like Lemon Tree and Adam’s Flower Shop in Gulfport.
The shop spent weeks ordering an assortment of flowers for Valentine’s Day, including 4,200 roses, tropicals, azaleas, carnations, hydrangeas, and that’s just to name a few. The shop will also have extra hands on deck to help customers.
With Valentine’s Day being the second busiest day of the year behind Mother’s Day for flower shops, owner Christopher Michaels says you can never be too prepared. “Everything is going to be spot on this year. This year, we’re going to be better. It is one day and one day only. No mistakes. You just got to do it. You’ve got to be there. You’ve got to hustle. You’ve got to get it delivered. Get it done and out on time.”
The shop will also have extended hours on Valentine’s Day.
