By  | 

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - Maggard Florist delivered Valentine's gifts to many people making this holiday their 39th spent in eastern Kentucky.

Owners say they received nearly 50 last-minute orders overnight and into Wednesday morning.

Most folks requested the holiday favorite ... the red rose.

Employees say they were prepared and ordered 500 but believe they could have sold at least a thousand.

"We had all of these tables full of arrangements," Norris Maggard said. They've come in and purchased them all ... about wiped us out."

Though Maggard Florist's employees say they needed all hands on deck for the busy day, the smiles they see from customers makes all the work worth it.
