Many folks have fond holiday memories of driving to a local tree lot to pick out the perfect spruce. But that might not be the way of the future. In the advent of online shopping, folks might be ordering their Christmas trees on Amazon.
According to the Associated Press:
The company sold trees shorter than 3 feet last year, and some other merchants sold bigger ones using its platform as a marketplace. But this is the first year Amazon is offering the larger trees itself.
“Given the popularity among customers, we increased the assortment,” the company said.
A 7-foot Fraser fir from a North Carolina farm will cost $115, according to an Amazon holiday preview book. Also listed are a $50 wreath and a $25 red-leafed plant with a decorative candy cane speared into the soil.
