Christmas Tree Shops Store To Open At Mall


The Christmas Tree Shops store is set to open at Salmon Run Mall.

"We do surveys from time to time, 'What would you like to see come to Salmon Run Mall? What's missing in Watertown,'" said Karla Woods, marketing director at Salmon Run Mall.

The retailer, which was rumored to be coming to Watertown for months, is setting up shop near the food court.

"We're thrilled to have it here and we know it will do phenomenal! Huge with the Canadians, our military traffic," said Woods.

If you're wondering how a massive store like the Christmas Tree Shops fit in the space, apparently there's more than meets the eye from the outside. 10:49:01

"These two tenants that were here prior were relocated and Christmas Tree Shop will actually take up this whole space," said Woods.

In all, the store will take up 26,000 square feet of space!

As for one of the old tenants - GlowGolf has moved out and moved on to the old DealMarker location off Arsenal Street.

"Being up on a main strip here, being stand alone, we can keep later hours. We don't have to abide by the mall's closing at 9 (p.m.) things like that. Obviously, we have a bigger parking space," said George Laribee, Jr., GlowGolf manager.

And as for the Christmas Tree Shops, Woods believes it will open in two months.

Calls to the retailer were not returned.

The company's web site says Christmas Tree Shops is a leading, value priced retailer of home décor, giftware, housewares, food, paper goods, and seasonal products for every time of the year.
