The Christmas Tree Stand at Key Food in Park Slope
The Park Slope Key Food Christmas tree stand has been a staple of the neighborhood for years. The salespeople are friendly, the stand is well-lit, organized and has everything you need to get the Holidays started in your home! This stand is located in the parking lot in front of Key Food, Park Slope at: 120 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217.
Oliver, one of the Park Slope Christmas tree stand employees, can be seen here ringing up a customer at the stand while the customer's kids wait for their tree to be ready. Oliver and the crew at the stand live in a rented truck parked in the Key Food parking lot and watch the stand in shifts.
A customer walks past rows of fresh-cut Christmas trees from the team's farm. The stand is packed with hand-made Christmas decorations, like these snowmen made out of Christmas tree scraps. They look great on tables, and other small areas in the home.
The workers at this stand truly care about their customers and seem to love the Holidays. Here you can see one of the stand workers answering questions about the Christmas trees at the stand.
Wreaths decorated with red bows are hung all over the stand, making the whole area look beautifully decorated. Here you can also see the small make-shift hut that the stand workers use to keep warm. 3-foot and 4-foot trees line the sidewalk in front of the hut.
Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is a family event! Here you can see a customer with his two young children picking out and taking home the perfect 7 foot Christmas tree. Oliver helps them wrap it up in a Christmas tree baler (with netting) so they can take it home.
Christmas trees and wreaths decorate the sidewalk of 5th Avenue in front of Key Food. Here you can see lots of trees leaning on the a-frame Christmas tree stand in front of the store. Customers and their kids walk by to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.
The trees at this stand come from a farm called Evergreen. We're told it's a New York based company, although Oliver and the Christmas tree stand workers are all from Quebec, Canada.
