Big Chuck Asks: ‘Will You Buy A Christmas Tree From Amazon?’
Amazon is really stretching out!
This year you can buy a real, live Christmas tree on Amazon and have it delivered to you your front door. Talk about convenience. or, talk about laziness.
This is not a fake tree. This is a real living tree, like a Norfolk Northern Pine or even a Douglas Fir. The average price for a tree, fresh cut, packaged and delivered in 3 days to your door is about $100 for a 7 foot tree.
As for me, I no longer go out in to the country and cut down my own tree. But I do prefer to buy my live Christmas tree from a local business or even an organization, such as a community group or club.
Amazon will also be selling fresh cut wreaths and holiday plants. Cut fresh and again delivered right to your door. I can actually see doing this. A nice fresh wreath showing up on my doorstep (or even having one sent to a loved one) seems perfectly reasonable. Wreaths will go for about $50 and plants for about $25.
Amazon will start this holiday service in November.
So, for me? A wreath sent to my kids? Yes. A live Christmas tree?
How about you?
