Chances are, if you work in a corporate office, you’re looking at bouquets of flowers and boxes of candy.
It’s Valentine’s Day. That time of year when gifts are exchanged among loved ones in the name of St. Valentine – and to the benefit of the retail industry. And like Christmas, gift buying on this holiday tends to be at the last minute.
More Americans are celebrating the holiday this year, spending an estimated $16.9 billion, up more than 20% from 2006, according to the National Retail Federation’s 2007 Valentine's Day Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey, conducted by BIGresearch.
