DALLAS (KDAF) — While some like to plan ahead for the day of love, others take a more spontaneous approach to Valentine’s Day. However, with all the supply chain issues and shipping headaches of 2022, it was probably best to plan ahead.
According to a new report from 4Over.com, Dallas residents were ranked 10th in the nation for America’s biggest procrastinators for Valentine’s Day.
To find out who were the biggest procrastinators, the report analyzed Google search volume related to “last-minute Valentine’s Day gift ideas” in all 50 states as well as the most populated cities across the country.
