Valley shoppers hustling to get last-minute Valentine's gifts

PHOENIX -- Valentine's Day is here, which means plenty of Valley residents will be looking to pickup a gift for that special someone on their way home.

"It's the best time," said Vickey Bailey, who was shopping at the Fry's Valentine's Day tent at 20th Street and Highland. "It's when they cut the prices."

While some have no idea what they want to get their significant other, Vince Fererico said he had one thing in mind.

"Flowers for the girlfriend. I don't want to get yelled at when I get home," he laughed.
