Businessman ready to sell fresh Christmas trees big and small

Tajiri’s Trees is now open for business.

Richard Tajiri said he’s brought in about 5,000 Christmas trees to sell this year.

He has two locations — one in the old Varsity Theater parking lot on University Avenue and the other near Toys R Us in Pearlridge Center.

“(People) do their shopping, then they come and get a tree,” Tajiri said, “and then they get all their supplies, because we don’t sell the lights and all that. I think it’s a win-win for both locations, for us and for the mall.”

He said he has a lot of smaller trees to sell as well. “There’s a lot of condos and apartments here and a lot of people don’t want to spend the big money on a big Christmas tree, so they just want a little one, have a nice scent of Christmas, so we’ll have it here.”

Tajiri’s Trees will be open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Prices range from $25 to $100.

Other retailers around town that are also selling real Christmas trees include City Mill, Home Depot and Walmart.
