Sunday, May 11 is Mother’s Day and florists around Great Falls are gearing up for a busy Mother’s Day weekend.
Flowers are the most-purchased Mother’s Day gift, and two-thirds of consumers plan to pick up a bouquet for Mom this year.
The staff at Herman’s Flowers has shifted preparations into high gear, working to make sure their biggest sales day of the year is a success.
Sharon Flynn, Herman’s Flowers Floral Designer stated, “On a normal day the shop has just one person on delivery duty; this week we will have five vehicles making the rounds.”
Flynn also said, “We have brought in extra staff. Most customers have no idea what type of flowers to purchase.”
