Christmas Trees Sales Bring In the Green

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It seems Christmas trees are recession-proof.

A major local Christmas tree distributor says sales are up, because people refuse to give up on their holiday traditions. Happy Holiday Christmas Trees, opened up in 1971 and has several locations through out South Florida like this one on Northlake Boulevard.

The General Manager says people may not be spending much this holiday and are certainly not traveling as much. That means they are staying at home and they want a nice tree. Sam Pearlstein/General ManagerL: "We've been thru this before, several recessions and during recessions our business picks up. It's always better, people stay home, they are tighter knit and families are closer"

Some customers told us however, they are getting smaller trees this year to try to save some money.
