Here’s How Local Businesses Are Getting Ready for Valentine’s Day


Eureka, Ca. (KIEM) — Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and people are gearing up to celebrate.

Flowers and chocolate are two things that come to mind when people think of Valentine’s Day. With the holiday just a couple of days away, people are scrambling to get those last-minute gifts and local businesses are preparing.

Eureka Florist is one local business dealing with an influx of customers this time of year. To prepare, they’ve ordered thousands of flowers and are working day in and day out. They’re offering a number of specials and they pride themselves on using local flowers and having something for everyone.

For those with more of a sweet tooth, Old Town Coffee and Chocolates is there for all of your candy needs. They’ve been busy too. If you’re looking to order a box of dipped strawberries or a dozen of their heart-shaped cookies, you’ll have to place your order by Thursday.

Eureka Florist will be open late on Friday, until around 7 pm, for all of those late-night valentine’s day gifts.
