A number of local Christmas tree sales are set to begin after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Perhaps the best-publicized of the local sales is the Arlington Optimist Club’s tree sale at the Well Fargo bank parking lot on the corner of Lee Highway and N. Glebe Road.
The lot will open Friday, from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Then, starting Monday, the schedule will be as follows:
- Monday to Thursday — 2 to 8 p.m.
- Friday — Noon to 8 p.m.
- Saturday and Sunday — 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Clarendon United Methodist Church, at 607 N. Irving Street, is also planning a Christmas tree sale starting this weekend. All proceeds will benefit the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) and Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network (A-SPAN).
The church’s sale will begin Sunday “and will continue until trees are sold out.” The hours are:
- Sunday — Noon to 4 p.m.
- Monday to Friday — 5 to 9 p.m.
- Saturday — 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There are a number of other local Christmas tree sales that take place around Arlington — as detailed in this article from last year — but remarkably, in 2016, there is still little information about the sales to be readily found online.
Other usual Christmas tree sale locations include Whole Foods stores, local farmers markets, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church (830 23rd Street S.), the Cathedral of St. Thomas More (3901 N. Cathedral Lane), the Dominion Hills shopping center (6000 Wilson Blvd), the Food Star parking lot (950 S. George Mason Drive) and the Unleashed by Petco parking lot (5400 Lee Highway).
