Last-Minute Christmas Tree Shopping Can Pay Off
(Springfield, MO) -- We're just a few days away from Christmas, and while some of us have had our trees up for weeks, some procrastinators are looking for the perfect seasonal icon.
If you're one of them, here's some good news: there are still plenty to be had, and you may even get a good deal!
Chris Mahan with Kings Tree Lot on E. Sunshine says he's sold about 250 trees so far this season.
"Trying to get rid of them. I mean, it's today and tomorrow and then it's over. Some of the smaller trees are 50 percent and some of the bigger ones we will probably go a little bit better."
Another tip Mahan wants to give people is to make sure you're driving a car that can handle hauling the tree home.
You may also want to try to bargain for a better price, because sellers are anxious to get all of the trees sold.
