Be the first to grab your Christmas Tree– and get first dibs on the one you find to be the perfect fit!
A lot will be opened up to begin selling Christmas trees in the Back Bay area, so if you want to get an early start and make sure you get the tree that is just perfect for your home, take some measurements of the height and width you’re looking for and come on down to grab yourself the best tree on the lot!
