WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) -- Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and Evolutions in Design in Wausau is working toward ensuring orders are fulfilled in time for the day of love.
Randy Verhasselt, Owner of Evolutions In Design, said the few days leading up to Valentine's Day are always the craziest of the year.
Last year the floral and gift shop made around 700 deliveries happen in a span of four days, and they're on track to do it again if not more.
As the phones continue to ring non-stop, preparations ahead of Sunday have started with a plan for van rentals to expedite the delivery process, which started late this week.
Verhasselt mentioned the current state of COVID-19 may slow down the delivery process this year because of safety protocols, but contactless delivery will be in place.
Close to a dozen extra staff members will be all hands on deck in making sure people get their orders in time.
He also believes people are in need of kind gestures like flowers or thoughtful gifts now more than ever because of the ongoing pandemic.
"Not even that it's just Valentines Day, but even people that maybe aren't your valentine; I think it's really great," Verhasselt stated. "We've seen a few people just sending multiples out to people just for random acts of kindness. People really need it this year."
EID also has other gift ideas like candy or metal roses to accompany any other personalized gifts to show that special someone how much you care.
Customers are also encouraged to call ahead to coordinate a drop off or a safe pickup option at the shop.
