Blizzard, Roof Collapse Won’t Stop Valentine’s Day Deliveries

View Comments ()



    Flower Wonderland in Branford is determined to get Valentine’s Day flowers out to customers today, even after the blizzard delayed their flower delivery and caused part of the roof to collapse.

    The shop received three days-worth of flower deliveries on Tuesday because of the backlog from the blizzard.

    ‘As a matter of fact, we just got shoveled out yesterday, so then we were waiting for the flowers to come in because we were supposed to get deliveries Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so that's three days of deliveries that we got in one day," said Gigi Fusco, who owns the shop.

    Flower Wonderland is also working with their delivery service to make sure they can actually get around some of the still snow-covered roads in the area to make Valentine's Day flower deliveries.

    "Our motto is, ‘If it's passable, it's possible.’ So, if your driveway is done, if the streets are done, we'll be there," Fusco said.
