SARASOTA - In this week's edition of Feel Good Friday, SNN's Grant Boxleitner spent time at Suncoast Florist ahead of Mother's Day weekend. 

The locally owned shop at the intersection of Bahia Vista and South Beneva Road is gearing up for one of the busiest weeks of the year. The shop just received a large shipment of fresh flowers this week, and staff members are filling orders, making arrangements and dropping off deliveries. 

Owner Jeff Gordon says the best value for customers is when designers are allowed to create something special, rather than going off a recipe. 

A National Retail Federation survey shows 67 percent of people plan to buy flowers for Mother's Day, spending an estimated $2.6 billion on the traditional gift. 

Gordon talks about the kinds of flowers and more during the segment. Catch Feel Good Friday weekly on SNN, the Suncoast News Network.
