PSA: Costco is out of the real Christmas tree business this year *in Atlanta
Posted by: Will Collier

We'd been getting our trees there for quite a while now. Great price compared to tree lots, and they'd been very fresh, but per a couple of store managers here in the Atlanta area they are not selling them at any store this year. No idea whether this is a permanent thing or not.

Wound up going to Home Depot next door; the tree was about $10 more than we'd been paying to Costco, but on the upside they did a free trim of the stump, which saved me from breaking out the chainsaw when we got it home...

I’m going to make mine out of white pine saplings, a hardwood branch for an armature, a 5 gallon bucket, and fishing line. The saplings are surplus anyway, and it was free and attractive last year. I didn’t want to deal with crowds/competition at our beloved local tree farm… most places are marked way up or don’t have many trees this year. Our guy won’t change his prices, so I think he’ll be overrun. He didn’t open last year.

And, they didn’t have any fruitcake at Costco either. cursing smiley
It’s a war on Christmas, I tell you. Lol

As an aside,
I used to volunteer to work the tree lot when I worked at HD.
It could be cold and rainy and it was very physically challenging, those trees are heavy, but I really enjoyed it. I also helped paint the HD Xmas decorations, too. I was a regular little elf. grinning smiley

They had the tree outside the entrance to my Costco in Southern California. Around $46 or so in price

No kidding. Maybe it's just an Atlanta (or east coast) thing.

Thanks...

Big western wildfires affected ours here in calf. We get noble firs from the same place for the last 15 years, been hovering around $70 for the past few years for 6-7 ft.

$99 today.

Ace hardware wants $90.

Amazingly, the Costco on Kauai has trees for sale. Saw a couple of containers when I was shopping a few days ago.
