The holidays are still more than three months away, but one local retailer is readying for the season already.
The popular Peppermint Forest Christmas Shop will open Oct. 10.
This will be the shop’s 36th season. It takes place at a warehouse at 11729 Carolina Place Parkway, next to Carolina Place Mall in Pineville.
The shop sells thousands of Christmas-related items, including artificial trees, ornaments, candles and lights, according to its website.
Last season, the shop operated through Jan. 10.
