When I called prior to the sale, they said they get a truckload once a year and sell till they are gone.
I saw this on a banner in the Springfield, VA store and went there this past Saturday. When we saw one being loaded up on a car, we almost turned around as they looked scrawny. At $27.99, we took a gamble that it would look good once unwrapped. It sure paid off. The tree is a beautiful three and over 8 feet tall. I would highly recommend this deal!
