A local florist provides insight on their busiest day of the year
The romance of Valentine's Day isn't lost on any florist, as they prepare for their busiest day of the year.
Owner of Riverport Florist in Echuca, Sarah Newman, said they were expecting plenty of business throughout the week.
"We're expecting anywhere from 150-200 orders pre-ordered for Valentine's Day itself," she said.
"Our walk-ins could be anywhere from 200-300 people on the day, and that's not even including the couple of days before which are also fairly massive for us."
The celebration of love and romance is not lost on the business owner, who said she was happy to see so many people celebrating.
"I think everybody likes to spread the love a little bit - whether it's for that special partner or whether it's just showing your friend or family member that you've got a little bit of love there to share."
