For those who missed it, the Christmas Tree Shop is up and running in Greensboro :-)
It's exit 214 off I 40.

I know but you can get there in around 90 minutes and it is an easy drive. There's a Hobby Lobby there which is to me a combination of Christmas Tree Shop and Michael's. There's tons of shopping in Greensboro or you can stop at the new tnager outlets on the way...or at Southpoint on the way back.

Oh how I've missed the Christmas Tree Shop since moving here from MA 4 years ago! Wish it were closer, but I guess Greensboro is better than nothing!

What a great store. We had a beautiful tree we purchased from the Tree Store in Madison WI way back in 1996. It was a wonderful 7 1/2 foot tree. Could hardly tell it was artificial. We finally laid it to rest after the Christmas of 2008. One of the few things we miss is having room to store a great Christmas tree.
We have decided to use Charlie Brown's tree this year.

To be clear, it's not really a Christmas store except at Christmas time when they have a large section devoted to Christmas items. They don't have too many trees to my knowledge. The name is deceiving. It is more like general merchandise with seasonal stuff thrown in. Great deals on wrapping paper, bags, frames, lamps, kitchen stuff but I mostly like the seasonal sections.

I was thinking the same thing. Our Christmas Tree Shop does not actually sell trees!

I buy a lot of picture frames there. Definitely NOT worth a 90 minute drive under any circumstances.

I just made the 90 minute trek and it was worth every mile. I can't believe I used to live 10 minutes from the one in Shrewsbury and didn't appreciate it more!
