Higdon Florist Sees Their Busiest Valentine's Day in Years
By Brad Douglas
JOPLIN, MO.--- In case you missed the memo, today is Valentine's Day and evidently a lot of men just got the hint. Florists at Higdon's in Joplin say this is their busiest Valentine's Day in years. In the last two days, they have taken 600 orders and made just as many deliveries. Owners say they have stopped taking delivery orders due to all the demand and have had to turn away more than 200 people.
"I think a lot of it is they get busy and they don't think about it. They just assume and then, it's Valentine's day. They're surprised when we can't do it. I feel badly," said Marcia Baker, Higdon Florist.
Owners say they will also stay busy on Saturday for the men in the doghouse who forgot todays date.
