Brenda Theurer, owner and operator of Brenda's Florist said she will throw away ten percent of the 3,000 roses she ordered this Valentine's Day.
Theurer says she won't send out roses that are not 100 percent quality. Theurer hired eight extra employees to keep up with the high demand. They've been working past midnight every day this week to prepare for the holiday.
On Thursday, Theurer opened the flower shop two hours early. They sent out nearly 600 orders.
They also made several pre-made arrangements at the beginning of the week.
"You have to count your blessings and hope you've sold everything that you've made because there's a very labor intense job," Theurer said.
Valentine's Day is the busiest day of the year for Theurer, but she enjoys it. She is busy all day and the day goes by fast, she said.
