V-Day Rush in Area Flower Shop

Snow drifts and slippery roads did not stop area businesses from spreading messages of love today.

The show must go on at Wygants floral in South Bend despite winter weather and illness.

Get this they say most of the staff called in sick on the busiest day of the year.

Not to worry though drivers are still getting hundreds of deliveries to sweethearts in town.

Flowers have been shipped in from all over the world.

However, with so many schools and businesses closed today, old man winter has certainly made this Valentine's Day a challenge.

Wygant’s ownder, Mary Green says, "First thing this morning as soon as phones started ringing they were all teachers or husbands of spouses sending to people at school, so we're just re-routing them and trying to get them to their home addresses today."

Wygant florists sent out around 370 deliveries and more than 5-thousand roses.
