Think of Thanksgiving and we think of, well, how about Christmas Trees!

South Poles Christmas Tree lot has been selling the Suncoast Christmas trees for 25 years.  The lot opened five days ago, so SNN stopped by on Thanksgiving to see who was taking a break from turkey and football to buy a tree.

Owner Al Cone, says he believes his lot is known for quality. 

“Service, that’s the most important thing. Prices keep going up, so it’s tough. So we have to make it up some other way”, said Al Cone.

Cone says the average price of a Christmas tree is around $100  and they do not sell fake trees, but they do offer poinsettias, and wreaths.

There were few customers today at the lot. Cone says it may have been too many folks choosing turkey and football over trees.  South Poles Christmas Trees come from Michigan and the Carolinas.
