Mother's Day boosts business for restaurants, flower shops

Mother's Day provided a welcome boost in business for shops and restaurants around the area.

Kevin Kegan, the owner of Blossom Flower Shop in Yonkers, says that while business is down compared to five years ago, it is on an uphill swing.

The flower shop capitalized on the upswing by extending its hours today to accommodate all of its customers.

Restaurants also made a push to raise their bottom line by trying to squeeze in every walk-in they possibly could.
