MAGIC 106.7FM - Picking a Christmas Tree... Online?! This new service makes the task a lot easier
December 17, 2018
This time of year, you could walk through a farm’s rows of trees, searching for your perfect Fraser fir as holiday songs blast and bundled-up families peruse nearby. Or you could let a Boston-based company do all of the leg work for you.
Christmas Tree for Me, owned by engaged couple Jeff Feccia and Bridget Kinney, aims to simplify the way people shop for trees. Customers order their trees online, and the company delivers them and sets them up. It also hosts Christmas tree pop-up shops in residential building lobbies across Boston. Homemade wreaths, made by Kinney, and tree accessories such as lights and stands, are available for sale online and at the pop-up shops as well. Christmas Tree for Me trees, which come from Canada this year, cost $74 to $239, depending on size and type. Delivery is included in that cost for city customers, while those who live more than three miles outside of the city pay a $3-per-mile delivery fee.
The price of the trees also includes set up and clean up — both pre- AND post-Christmas. The company returns after the holidays to haul the trees away and recycle them. For more info you can check out -- christmastree4me.com.
