Don't forget: Mother's Day is Sunday!

Associated Press - May 9, 2008 3:13 AM ET

Friday is the second day of a three-day rush for floral delivery companies to get their flowers delivered for Mother's Day. It's Sunday, by the way.

The National Retail Federation says it expects people to spend slightly less on Mom this year compared to last. Between the credit crunch and rising food and energy costs, consumers have plenty of reasons to watch their pennies.

At 1-800-Flowers, founder and CEO Jim McCann says his company hasn't raised prices, despite rising fuel costs. McCann says he has seen no indication that consumers are trading down to lower priced flowers, despite inflation pressures.
