Some people are too lazy to get their fresh cut trees this year, and stores are willing to lend them a hand. Popular retailers such as Kmart, Costco, and Target are delivering the magic to homes across the United States. And now Sears is joining the mix by offering sales on trees up until December 15th, and shipping them off within 24 hours.
The prices start at $79, and is a marketing plan to sell more holiday goods such as ornaments and wrapping paper online. You would think this new online sensation just recently started, but in fact Target and Costco have been selling trees online for quite some time.
But wheres the fun of the Holiday’s going? It seems to me that as the years go on, Americans become more inactive and lazier. Sure, people are busy with work or school, or other obligations. But the Holidays are supposed to be a whimsical time where people can relax and be merry.
According to the National Christmas Tree Association, at least 33% of people will still go out to pick their tree in the spirit of Christmas. Most businesses are just looking for another way to make money off of the Holiday, and forgetting the true joy and excitement of it.Tags: fresh cut christmas tree, online, Sears
