Christmas Etc seeing green in new City Place location

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - West Palm Beach's only year-round Christmas shop is hoping for some economic holiday cheer in a new location right in the heart of City Place.
 
"It's nice to see new faces.  We get our regulars in here, they come in and putz around, but the new people are amazed," said store owner, Bill Laughlin.  

Its previous location, off of Belvedere road, is being remodeled.  When a spot in City Place opened up, store owner Bill Laughlin and his staff, brought their own holiday cheer downtown. 

"It is pure chaos having to move a store of 15 years over into this place. We had to disassemble, reassemble here, different displays, different sizes of displays," said Laughlin.

The store even added a second space just down the block, stocked with pre-lit trees.  Laughlin's hard work is paying off  as foot traffic in the store has dramatically increased in the new location. 

"Traffic yes, dollar amounts about the same.  I think people are still looking to see what we're about," said Laughlin.
