After months of drought and a global supply chain crunch, Costco and other retailers may sell Christmas trees for less this holiday season.
The American Christmas Tree Association told Granthshala Business that shortages are across the industry.
“Costco and all retailers will be affected by reduced tree supplies this season,” ACTA said in a statement. “We anticipate that most retailers that typically sell both live and artificial trees will continue to do so, although they will have limited supplies compared to previous years.”
ACTA said the short supply could be attributed to extreme weather events in the Pacific Northwest and Midwest and supply chain congestion brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“These challenges are real. That said, most American consumers will be able to find a Christmas tree this year,” Acta said.
