Florists Take On The Snow With Valentines Day Deliveries

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Road conditions are not stopping the flower delivery business.

Bloom by Doyle's Florist is preparing for their Valentine's Day rush. Despite the weather, they are making every effort to get the flowers out on time.

The owner of the flower shop, Debbie Miller, says they will deliver more than 500 arrangements this Valentine's Day. Miller says if they don't get deliveries out and bring customers in they will lose thousands of dollars.

Red roses are a popular choice for the holiday. Miller says they make countless arrangements that go out all over Lynchburg.

When employees saw the forecast, they ordered many to  go out Wednesday. There were still some orders that needed to be taken out, Thursday however.

The Florist's delivery van trekked into neighborhoods all around the city. Now that they're caught up, the shop says they'll get ready for the day they've been preparing for since Monday.

"And now we're just getting ready for tomorrow, and taking those orders and just assuring people that the local florist will be open and ready to go for Valentine's Day," said Debbie Miller who owns the florist shop.

Debbie says the snow did not close them down completely. She said they got so many online orders that when she printed the list Wednesday morning, she showed her staff, joking the long paper looked like Santa's list.

Miller said they will be working around the clock to get the orders finished and delivered on time.
