In 2008, we decided to have a seasonal Christmas tree lot at The Garden Outlet. As you may remember, the economy was in a shambles then and finances were pretty tight for many people in our area and around the country.
As a way to say thanks to our customers and to do something special for them during the season of giving, we brought in 200 Christmas trees and priced them all at $25. Those trees sold out in less than two days after we were featured on the local news.
Something pretty great happened during that first Christmas tree sale. Some of the people who came to purchase a bargain tree ended up “paying it forward” by buying trees for families in need.
It’s a wonderful thing to be able to give a Christmas tree to a family who couldn’t afford one. Imagine the joy on their faces, especially when they hear they can choose any tree on the lot. No Charlie Brown trees here!
As you can probably imagine, we’re very busy during the holiday season. But it’s our favorite time of the year because we get to say thanks, give back and witness generosity, good cheer and the true spirit of Christmas over and over again.
