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.

Biz Briefs: Big Y Closing Stores for Thanksgiving Holiday

Big Y Giving Workers Two Days Off

Big Y has issued a reminder that it will close all stores including Big Y World Class Markets, Table & Vine and Fresh Acres specialty market on Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, as well as Friday Nov. 27. Big Y Express Gas & Convenience locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day as well.
Big Y officials say this two-day closing is to thank the thousands of employees for their continued hard work and tenacious efforts throughout the challenges of being an essential service throughout the pandemic and so their employees can rest and spend more time with their families. In addition, the closure will allow time for extra cleaning, restocking and preparations for the remainder of the holiday season.
Big Y also closed on Easter Sunday and Monday (April 12 & 13) in order to give its teams some much needed rest. In addition to these days of rest for their employees, Big Y has provided thank-you pay and now thank-you bonuses for front-line workers in recognition of their continued commitment to each other and to their customers.
All locations will re-open on Saturday, Nov. 28, for their usual hours. More information can be found on
