SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA. (March 5, 2015). Allen’s Flowers and Plants, a local San Diego florist with multiple locations and recipient of the Best San Diego Florist by the San Diego Union Tribune for five consecutive years, announced that it reported record flower sales this Valentine’s Day as it was recently covered on NBC’s local San Diego channel.


According to the local San Diego news story and the National Retail Federation, Americans spent approximately $2.1 billion on flowers this Valentine’s Day as well as $18.9 billion on all types of gifts for this holiday. This new record number was definitely reflected in the San Diego florist’s sales this year as each of its San Diego locations experienced non-stop traffic flow during Valentine’s Day. The San Diego florist opened its doors at 6:00a.m. Valentine’s Day, filling existing and new orders for bouquets and flower arrangements as well as staying open until every customer had their Valentine’s Day flowers.


With the holiday of love falling on a Saturday, many local San Diego residents also chose this day to get married. Nearly 200 couples tied the knot at Waterfront Park and picked up their flowers from nearby Allen’s Flowers and Plants downtown, San Diego’s Best Flower Shop, which is located in the Gaslamp District.
