East Lansing businesses prepare for Valentine’s Day

Posted by Kristin Skaggs on February 12, 2010

Valentine's Day is Sunday, Feb. 14, and local businesses are getting prepared for the holiday.

Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year. For the people at B/A Florist, this means staying open an extra day this week.

The shop was bustling Friday morning. There were many orders to be delivered before offices closed on Friday.

Workers in the shop said it was nice that Feb. 14 fell on a Sunday this year because it spread the orders out over the whole weekend and provided an entire extra day of business.

Valentine’s Day is undoubtedly great for florists, candy shops and jewelry stores, but what about everyday people? Many love the holiday, but some could do without it.

Other local businesses get in on the holiday spirit as well. Harper’s Restaurant and Brewpub, for instance, has a ½ off pizza and draft beer special for Valentine’s Day.
