Sears.com offering free Christmas tree delivery

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. — Sears announced that it is offering free delivery of fresh cut Christmas trees to customers when they order them via Sears.com. Through Dec. 15, customers can go to Sears.com to order their own Fraser fir from the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains and have it delivered for free directly to their home, apartment or office. 

"This holiday season, we wanted to offer our customers an easy solution to finding the perfect Christmas tree," said James Alt , VP seasonal and outdoor living for Sears Holdings. "At Sears, we understand that this time of year can be busy, but with a convenient, home-delivered tree, families can dedicate more time to enjoying the magic of the holiday season."

All fresh-cut Christmas trees are hand-picked and thoroughly inspected, according to the company. The Fraser fir Christmas trees can range from 4.5- to nine-feet tall and are available with free shipping at Sears.com.

The freshly harvested Christmas tree will ship within 24 hours of cutting to help ensure freshness and longevity, the company said. The holiday team also prunes, shakes and packages the tree in a sturdy, moisture-resistant carton for optimal protection. Additionally, customers will receive a complimentary tree removal bag along with the delivery that can serve as a bag for a tidy and easy disposal or recycling following the holidays.
