LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Many purchased flowers and chocolates to give to a special someone on Valentine's Day.
But now that the holiday is over, what do stores do with the extra stock?
Finnottes on Main Street packed their shelves with 100 heart-shaped boxes and 50 to 80 pounds of other Valentine's Day candy, according to owner Laurie Finn.
While she sold most of it, there is still some left over. So to get it off the shelves, Finnottes prices all Valentine-specific items at 40 percent off.
"Each holiday is a little bit different," Finn said. "There are some holidays that I find so many new things and I bring all of those in but I don't quite back off some of the other things so I have a lot more left over. This year, I have probably the least left over that I ever have had
Finn said Valentine's Day is Finnottes' third biggest holiday of the year, behind Christmas and Easter.
