Flower shop pumps out orders for Valentine’s Day

February 15, 2018 GMT

HUNTINGTON — Hearts beat in sync Tuesday as a handful of workers pumped out orders for pickup and delivery at Spurlock’s Flowers and Greenhouses in Huntington, making sure lovers were prepared for Valentine’s Day.

Filled with red to commemorate one of its busiest holidays every year since opening in 1946, Spurlock’s took orders at the counter and over the phone for bouquets — especially the classic dozen roses in a vase — with chocolate and stuffed animals.

Even though the shop closed in the early evening, workers expected to be there late to make sure orders were ready for delivery Wednesday, Feb. 14.
