WAITING FOR CHRISTMAS (TREE SHOPS): If you’re like us, certain billboards around town have piqued your curiosity about the mysterious “Christmas Tree Shops” store coming soon to Addison. Why, we wonder, would an entire store be devoted solely to Christmas trees? Would it also sell stands and skirts? How “soon” would it arrive? First of all, after a little digging, we learned that Christmas Tree Shops is a 60-store Bed, Bath & Beyond-owned chain specializing in bargains for “all seasons”. (Everything from dorm décor to wine glasses to flip-flops.) Second of all, a “fall opening” is planned. Finally, as for that curiously festive name, it’s still anybody’s guess. GET IT: Christmas Tree Shops’ first Texas location will be at 13900 Dallas Parkway North, Addison. For more information, visit ChristmasTreeShops.com.
