BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Valentine’s Day is Friday.
Edible Arrangements in Boardman says it has been planning since November.
The store completes about 40 orders on a typical day, but on Valentine’s Day, that number jumps to 1,000.
So, Edible Arrangements has to bring in more employees and delivery drivers, and of course, order more fruit.
“On a normal week, we will probably get 30 to 35 flats of strawberries. On Valentine’s Day, we will probably get 250 to 300 flats,” said Owner Robert Taylor.
Eight quarts are in a flat of strawberries, so Edible Arrangements uses about 240 quarts per week and about 2,400 quarts during Valentine’s week.
The store has expanded its menu with cookies, chocolate-covered apples and chocolates.
Edible Arrangements is open 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.
