PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Valentines Day is all about love, romance, and the bottom line for some very busy businesses.
For florists, it's one of the most important holidays of the year. Florists at Compositions in Portland spent the day before Valentine's Day preparing for the big day. Over the course of the week, they spend countless hours building arrangements and taking orders. Owner Mark Pellerin says much of his time is spent helping overwhelmed customers decide what to buy their special someone.
It's like the day before Christmas and the mall is closing at five and it's ten-to-five and somebody is trying to get all of their Christmas shopping done in ten minutes.
Pellerin says his orders will start going out for delivery at around 9 o'clock on Valentine's morning.
