Stew Leonard’s in Farmingdale Opens Christmas Shoppe &
Hosts 1st Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony
Stew Leonard’s Farmingdale store invites the community to celebrate Christmas with its first annual Tree Lighting Celebration on Wednesday, December 2. Plus, while the farm fresh food grocer is busy building out their 60,000 square foot store, the parking lot in front of the new store in Farmingdale’s Airport Plaza has been transformed into Stew Leonard’s Christmas Shoppe.
Stew Leonard’s food store in Farmingdale will officially open for business in late January 2016.
Christmas Tree Shoppe: Opens Wednesday, November 25
Stew Leonard’s Christmas Shoppe will open at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 25. The Shoppe will feature Fraser Fir trees as well as decorated and undecorated wreaths, white pine roping, scented pine cones, tree stands, and Stew Leonard’s Miracle Tree, a special formula developed with tree growers that replenishes the tree’s nutrients immediately.
Stew Leonard’s receives daily shipments of fresh, hand-sheared Fraser Firs from family owned tree plantations throughout Eastern Canada. Every customer buying their tree at Stew’s receives a complimentary fresh cut and will have their tree tied to their car, plus they’ll feel great knowing that the farm fresh grocer will plant two trees for every one that is cut down.
Fraser Firs are Stew Leonard’s best-selling tree as they have strong branches and shorter needles, so they are easier to decorate. Fraser firs also have excellent needle retention and are the best choice for holding heavy ornaments. Pricing starts at $19.99.
Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration: Wednesday, December 2, 2015 at 5:00 P.M.
Stew Leonard’s Farmingdale store is kicking off the 2015 holiday season with its first annual Christmas tree lighting celebration. The festivities begin at 5:00 p.m. with a performance from the Woodward Parkway Elementary School Band. Santa will spend the evening mingling with families and handing out candy canes. Complimentary hot cocoa and cookies will also be served.
The 20 foot live Norway spruce that will be lit for the celebration on December 2 will be planted in front of Stew Leonard’s new store in Farmingdale in the spring of 2016. This tree will be used for future tree lighting events.
