NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Carr Hardware received its first truckload of Christmas trees Thursday morning, truly ringing in the beginning of the holiday season.
"It is fun because so many people come in," Assistant Manager Claudia Randall said. "There are a lot of kids with their parents."
The trees hail from New Hampshire and are Douglas firs.
Randall said they will display the trees outside in two sections: sizes 5 feet to 7 feet and those even bigger for those looking to fill out higher ceilings.
"We set them up so people can see them," Randall said. "We will display a few of them out front."
Randall said staff will select one tree to decorate 
"We will use it on display and at the end of the year we will sell it real cheap to a family," she said. "It is here and those are the people at the last minute who are looking for anything."
The trees are currently on sale for those who want to get one thing out of the way before the holiday season starts in earnest.
