Flower shops all over the country are swamped with orders on this Valentine's Day.

In Knoxville, the Flower Pot on North Broadway is working fast to get deliveries out the door.

The staff worked through the night and all morning finishing bouquets of flowers and getting them organized for delivery.

This year, owner Mary Beth Reagan hired extra staff to deliver the arrangments.

It should come as no surprise that this is the busiest day of the year, but they love being able to make someone smile on Valentine's Day.

Over at the Chocolate Factory in Worlds Fair Park, staff has spent all morning dipping strawberries.

In all, they will dip more than 25-thousand berries.  That is their most popular item on Valentine's Day.

New owner, Brad Hamlett, also owns Bradley's in west Knoxville.
He expects both locations to be busy all day.
