"We can all relate to the anxiousness of last-minute customers who run into the store to grab flowers, wine, probably steaks or lobster, candy -- and hopefully strawberries, asparagus and potatoes -- for their perfectly planned evening"

"Be opportunistic and offer packages or items you wouldn't typically carry during this promotional period"
