Valentine's day is one of the busiest days of the year for flower shops.
Gustaf's Greenery in Sioux Falls delivered bouquets to nearly 700 people on Thursday.
Workers began loading up their vans around 6 A.M and made their way around town delivering the arrangements. Those that get to deliver the flowers said that while it is a busy day, it's also a fun one.
"It's always exciting because people are always happy to see you with some beautiful flowers. It's a good time!” said Kent Huemoeller, a deliveryman for Gustaf’s Greenery.
Gustaf's said they have delivery vehicles of their own, but rent extra vans specifically for Valentine’s Day.
