(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Across the country, flower shops are blooming with business. Flowers are flying off the shelf at a 50% increase this year compared to last year, and St. Joseph is no different.

“I mean we even thought we would be slow during last summer time because that's our slow season, and it was not slow. So we pretty much the last year, have been very busy, and this valentine's day is extremely busy like the ones in the past," said Butchart Flowers Owner, Michelle Leimbach.

People are not just buying flowers for Valentines Day, they are buying them for decorations and bringing life into their homes.

“Due to people being home more, they are buying more plants and flowers for their home, so that helps, so I am expecting an increase in flowers this year, flowers, candy, stuffed animals,” said Leimbach
