Niles shoppers prepare for bitter cold Valentine’s weekend

The Eastwood Mall in Niles is full of Valentine's Day shoppers, despite the winter weather.

Shoppers in Niles prepare for a frigid Valentine's Day.

NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – The snow and cold didn’t stop Valentine’s Day shoppers at the Eastwood Mall in Niles.

Rick and Sue King of Howland were shopping for cards for their grandkids and each other.

Even though many are shopping on Saturday, some still aren’t sure that they’ll venture out for dates on Sunday.

“I’d go to the beach if I could, but I think I’ll stay in tomorrow,” said Donnie King of Niles. “We are going to go out to eat this evening, and then I think we will stay in tomorrow and snuggle up on the couch.”

The weather might force some couples to stay in, but it’s not stopping others from showing their love.

“Usually we go, maybe not on Valentine’s Day. The night before, whatever, but we make sure we fit it in,” Rick said.

“I think people celebrate Valentine’s Day no matter what. Especially the men, they come out no matter what, they don’t want to get into trouble,” said manager of PMG Choclatier, Peggy Myers.

At PMG Choclatier in Niles, it’s still Valentine’s Day, no matter what the weather is like.

“We’re packing boxes,” Peggy Myers said. “Of course, the strawberries, that’s the number one item.”

Whether it’s grabbing a card or a box of chocolates, people in the Valley are still enjoying the holiday despite the snow and single digit temperatures.
