Flowers, Chocolates Going Fast As Valentine’s Day Approaches

BOSTON (CBS) – Hundreds of orders have already been made at Olympia Flowers on Washington Street ahead of Valentine’s Day.

Co-owner Eileen Borenstein said traditional items are always the best sellers.

“Roses, teddy bears, chocolates, and at the last minute, there’s more roses, bigger teddy bears, and bigger boxes of chocolate,” said Borenstein.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe reports.

Mark, a customer, came to buy flowers for his fiancée. He said he has decided to stay away from roses this year and that money is not an issue.

“I’m just waiting for her smile or call to say she’s enjoying it,” said Mark. “Her, being happy (makes it all worth it).”

Valentine’s Day is on Monday.
