MARCY, N.Y. -- Despite worries that there would be a shortage of Christmas trees due to fires out west, Candella’s in Marcy is fully stocked with various trees and wreaths.
Manager Shawna Candella Pappale says while they haven’t been affected by the shortage, it’s still a busy time of year as they help people choose and load their Christmas trees to bring them safely home.
“This time of year is a very rushed time of year for us, but we try and make it enjoyable for people. So when they come and pick out their tree we help with selecting it to getting it trimmed to put out onto their car and we help them wrap it and get it on their car so when they get it home, it’s easy,” said Pappale.
Before coming out to buy a tree, Papale says it’s also important to measure the dimensions in the area it will be placed to make sure the tree will fit.
