Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and the people at Billy Heroman's Flower Shop are swinging in to high gear to get your floors ready before the big day.
Workers say they'll be working around the clock to get all their orders processed and delivered.
Of course, many of the Valentine’s Day purchases come from men.
The general manager of Billy Heroman's says they're ready for the big rush.
“Valentine’s Day is 94 percent male purchasers, and like myself, all men like to wait until the last minute,” stated Ben Heroman, general manager. “We're here and we're ready and we're prepping for a busy day of men walking in and treating people special with flowers.”
Heroman's of course is not the only flower shop busy in the Capitol Area. Dozens of flower shops also prepared to work around the clock.
