They might be the new kid on the nursery and landscaping block, but Southern Carolina Palms in Aiken is ready with all things Christmas. Located at 22 Gunter Road, the business opened in July and now six months later, they boast of one of the largest selections of holiday decorations in the CSRA.
“Most of our sales come from families looking for a Christmas tree, wreath, swags, or inflatables,” said Annaleyse Black who handles customer questions and deliveries for Southern Carolina Palms. “We have all of that, but we have also catered to many Aiken businesses looking to gift their clients with a poinsettia or to decorate for their storefronts.”
You can see their flowers and decorations in front of Meybohm, MacK’s Deli and Concierge Real Estate, and other businesses that line the streets of downtown Aiken. Looking for a tree? They have fresh ones in a variety of heights and some pre-decorated artificial trees.
Tomorrow is a great time to browse their selection. Southern Carolina Palms is hosting a Christmas Festival complete with food trucks, music, and a pet-friendly holiday display to capture a Christmas snapshot.
“We will also have discounts during the event, and we are part of the Aiken Chamber’s Buy Red Ticket Campaign,” she said. “If you spend $25, you’ll be entered to win cash and other prizes.”
The fun begins at 9 a.m. with hot cocoa, gingerbread cookies, and all the decorating options you can imagine. It’s a great opportunity to shop at a small business and make a Christmas memory for them and for your family.
