(KETK) - Tyler Tx — The rush has finally ended for local flower and chocolate shops, and they are exahusted. But the work never ends.
"It was very busy, Valentine's day is the second biggest holiday compared to Christmas for us, so it was busy and everybody was having a good time and we sold out of a lot of things," said John Alber, manager at Sweet Gourmet. "Now were setting up for two things: St. Patricks day is coming up so we have a nice selection of things on our front table for that, that's always a fun holiday, then of course we have easter coming so it never ends we always go to the next holiday."
Luckily for them, they are in the industry of making people smile. And the end of Valentine's day also means the beginning of sales! Whether you bought your loved one decorations, candy, chocolate or flowers --- odds are, they are highly discounted now. And there is no where people would rather shop than local businesses that put the money from these holidays back into our economy.
"We have the most loyal customers," said Susan Myers, owner of Red Barn Flowers.
"It's fantastic," Alber said. "People in Tyler really like to support local businesses."
