Locals rush to find last-minute gifts


It was hustle and bustle on Friday as locals scurried to find that last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for their special someones.

Florists like Alan Cotton rushed to make deliveries and prepare that perfect arrangement for sweethearts.

Merchants from Dollar Tree to Pink Peppers to JCPenney and others were busy as bees throughout the day.
