Hearts are aflutter and love is in the air. It’s almost Valentine’s Day and there’s no better way to say, “Be Mine” than with flowers, cards, chocolate and a romantic meal at home, all brought to you by your local Strack & Van Til.

Visit the Floral Department for a wide array of beautiful bouquets and artfully arranged fresh florals that will make your sweetie swoon. Choose from traditional blossoms including ravishing roses, colorful tulips, lovely lilies and showy sunflowers, to exotic varieties such as opulent orchids and bold, double blooming lilies.

Prefer to send a plant? Options include calla lilies and cheerful cyclamen for those loved ones who want something to grow in their home.

Custom designs are available for pre-order now as well as plenty of bunches to grab and go on Feb. 14. You can even order online and have your bouquet delivered.

“The Floral Department is your one-stop shop for all things Valentine,” said Floral Department Director Jen Knoche. “We cater to all of our customers’ needs.”

Next, follow Cupid’s arrow to the Meat Department for high-quality Certified Angus Beef – the best beef in the Midwest.

“There’s nothing more memorable than the mouth-watering taste of a tender, juicy Certified Angus Beef steak,” noted Gary Teachman, Strack & Van Til Meat Department director. “When only the best will do for your honey, choose Certified Angus Beef, the most luxurious beef available.”

Only the best cuts can earn the name Certified Angus Beef, which must meet stringent quality standards, including abundant marbling, appearance and tenderness. This ensures that every bite is incredibly tender, naturally juicy and exceptionally flavorful.

This week, treat your sweetheart to Certified Angus Beef Filet Mignon at $14.90 per pound. That’s just $6.99 per 7.5-ounce serving. Pair it with delicious lobster tails for an exquisite surf ‘n‘ turf epicurean experience. Lobster tails are $23.96 per pound, or $6.99 for a 4-ounce tail.
