Love is in the air on Valentine’s Day

Commerce normally picks up for most businesses at Christmas time, but Valentine’s Day is almost an exclusive economic season for florists.  And across the City today, the hustle and bustle of cash for symbols of affection was blooming in red.  Some were looking for chocolates and sweets and others for stemmed roses. News Five’s Carla Bradley went to the downtown area today where affection wafted in the air and found out from city residents, like the Bee Gee’s song, how deep was their love.
