Countdown to Valentine’s Day

The countdown to Valentine’s Day has begun, and it’s time to pick out the perfect gift for your sweetie.

Florafino’s in Zanesville is getting ready for its busiest day of the year.  Owner Greg Orofino said his store offers a variety of customizable arrangements.

"We actually have a cooler that’s in the middle of our store, and you can walk in there and pick out your own things," said Orofino.

Orofino said the chocolates, stuffed animals and jewelry line separate Florafino’s from the competition.  He said it’s best to start shopping early, but he’s prepared for people who wait until the day is here.

"This is unfortunately a holiday where mostly men buy," said Orofino.  "If it was a woman buying it, they would think ahead, but guys are last minute.  We’re ready for the last minute, and we’ll be here extended hours on Valentine’s Day."
