ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  This Valentine's Day, couples are cutting back on gifts, so says the National Retail Federation.

But this hasn't put a damper on businesses from selling their goods and services and Cupid's arrow remains mighty despite tough times.

There is an estimated $14 billion to be made nation wide this Valentine's day. Alan's Gifts set up a trailer at Slappey and 6th and has seen a steady flow of customers.

"You can't put a price on love, people love coming out here and getting stuff for their loved ones," Bruce Seybert, Alan's Gifts.

Men will spend nearly twice the amount women spend on the holiday. Men typically shell out $135 dollars while women only expect to spend $72.
