Weather disruption for flower sellers on their big day

  • Two companies facing a tough slog today are FTD Companies (FTD +0.4%) and 1-800-Flowers.com (FLWS -0.9%) with snow and ice across the East and South in the U.S. disrupting one of their busiest days of the year.
  • The flower delivery firms say they are making Valentine's Day deliveries the best that they can, but they are getting lit up on Twitter for various mishaps.
  • The early read on the holiday is that flower demand is unaffected, but costs this year could be higher for FTD and 1-800-Flowers.com.
