Mother's Day proves busy for 4-state florist

Business for one industry was booming on Mother's Day: florists. 

Across the country, family members and friends buy flowers to celebrate the mothers in their lives. According to the Society of American florists, Mother's Day accounts for one fourth of the floral purchases made for holidays. In Joplin, sales and foot traffic were up for Higdon Florist. Owner Marcia Baker says the week prior to today's holiday is their second busiest, falling just short of Valentine's Day.  

"Valentine's is always the biggest, but mother's day is such a special day we love taking flowers to mothers and a lot of times they're waiting at the door and they just love the flowers and we love fixing them beautifully for them," said Baker.

 Baker says they are normally closed on Sundays... But they opened today to keep up with extra sales and to accommodate many last minute customers.
