With the 2020 that we've been having, Walmart understands that anything that can add a bit of convenience to our lives will be a winning strategy.
This year, Walmart wants you to step back and actually enjoy the Christmas season with the addition of services that let them do the heavy lifting, with the introduction of live Christmas trees and greenery with free delivery and light hanging services.
Now, you can have the pretty tree, all the fresh greenery your heart desires, and the lit-up home with minimal effort, and to make way for activities you actually do enjoy.
Thinking faux? Check out our list of the best artificial Christmas trees.
Free Christmas Tree Delivery
Following the pursuit of The Home Depot, which has long offered free tree delivery, and Lowe's, Walmart joins in offering free live Christmas tree delivery, as well as other fresh Christmas staples like wreaths, garlands, and plants.
While a beautifully trimmed live tree is Christmas goals, we can't keep thinking about all the hassle and struggle that goes into getting it home... perhaps that's why faux-trees are so popular. Yet, who can deny the magic that is having a live and fragrant Christmas tree showcased in your home?
Walmart's latest venture enables you to accomplish all your shopping at once, including gifts, food, and tree shopping. Seems like the only thing left to do is trim the tree and wrap the presents.
Additionally, for those who really truly must select the perfect tree, real trees will be available in 1,000 stores nationwide right after Thanksgiving.
Of course, while picking out a tree together is a fun, family activity, the act of getting it home can be physically and mentally taxing. Rather, you can choose from a variety of live trees ranging from 3- to 7- feet tall, and varietals such as Fraiser Fir, Douglas Fir, Balsam Fir, and Spruce delivered straight to your front door, for no extra cost.
