Bristol Grocer Baffled by Rise in Valentine’s Day Merchandise sales


Recently, sales of cards, stuffed bears, chocolates and other paraphernalia with a Valentine’s Day theme have spiked in the area. One local bag boy, Jimmy Smirdon, is mystified.

“I don’t know what’s special about the month of February,” says Smirdon. “Why do people buy valentine’s stuff now instead of during Christmas when they are out shopping for presents? That is the time to buy gifts for people you love, not a week after Groundhog Day. It’s almost like there’s another holiday coming up, like a second Groundhog Day.”

Smirdon’s girlfriend could not be reached for comment because he has none.
