Where to buy a Christmas tree?

Postby 3Boys » Fri Nov 16, 2012 9:42 am

Howdy folks,
as the season draws near, have been desperately trying to find a place to buy an 8-foot artificial Christmas tree. Any tips?

After shopping around, I got mine last year from Spotlight over at Plaza Singapura... We bought one with PVC needles as in the Number 2 of the needle types enumerated here - http://www.balsamhill.com/Understanding-Different-Artificial-Christmas-Tree-a/163.htm

Spotlight was a convenient one stop shop for the rest of the stuff too... from decorations to lights. The range of lights was good too.

LOL! Not surprised you would even research pine needle types! :wink:

Much appreciated, thanks!

METRO @ Causeway Point (Woodlands) had atrium sales for the past few years selling the trees and their decorative pieces ie. shiny balls, stars, stockings.. the works! Not sure if they would continue to have them this year as well. They even offer new crockery sets like Queen Anne's, Correlle and fancy jars for those gingerbread cookies. Just down one level, you can purchase the boxed cakes and bbq chicken from Cold Storage or the fresh log cakes from the variety of bakeries as well.

3 boys, go to the wholesaler at The Verge in Serangoon. Parking is kinda weird as it does not go directly to shops but it's a haven for shopping for Christmas Trees and decoratives. It is on the 5th level.
