EAGLE RIVER (WAOW) -
Candy stores all over the country are getting ready for Feb. 14.
For this holiday, assorted chocolates are the most sought after item at Country Store in Eagle River, said Debra Preuhs, the store's owner.
Chocolate covered strawberries are another popular purchase. Preuhs said they'll last a little longer if they're kept out of the refrigerator. "Most important tip is to eat them soon and I guess once you see them they don't last too long anyway," she said.
When it comes to shopping for the big day Preuhs said men and women work on very different schedules. "The ladies are in earlier in the week and then the men come on especially Valentine's Day."
