GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Mother’s Day may be one of the busiest times of the year for flower shops, and one local store says their business has been better than ever.
Country Elegance Florists was opened over a decade ago a mother and daughter.
Sandi Reynolds says when they started she was handling everything from flower arrangements to deliveries.
“That is probably the most fun part, just being able to see their face when you give them those flowers," Sandi said.
The shop is now double its original size and has over 40 people that help out on holidays. This year they have gotten more flowers than ever before, receiving shipments every single day.
"This has been the best holiday we have ever had,” Sandi said. “I am so thankful and we are so blessed. We got the most beautiful flowers we have ever had."
More of their customers requested tropical flowers for the special day and the store took orders up until late last night.
Sandi expects orders to go way up next week for kids who forgot a gift on Mother’s Day.
