Mother’s Day is just around the corner and local florists are getting ready for the big weekend.
Workers at Gerlach’s Garden and Floral Shop say the days leading up to Mother’s Day are always some of the busiest. They tell us from start to close, they’re seeing a constant flow of customers all trying to take home the perfect bouquet for Mom.
Shelly Kupfer, of Gerlach’s, says, “for Mother’s Day, hanging baskets are our biggest selling [item]. We bring in five/six-hundred baskets for Mothers Day Weekend. Rose bushes are another big seller. We buy rose bushes that already have roses on them typically.”
But, flowers aren’t the only option this weekend. According to Citi Retail Services, greeting cards are the most popular Mother’s Day gift.
