ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Many Albany shoppers are picking up their Christmas Trees on this day after Thanksgiving.

The Eames Christmas tree lot at Dawson Road and Slappey Boulevard was busy Friday afternoon.

Paul Eames has been selling trees from this lot for 45-years.

He says despite the rough economy, He knows South Georgians will not do without their Christmas Trees.

Eames' Trees owner Paul Eames said "I've experienced this before. Whenever the economy was bad, and every year it seems like people are going to have a Christmas Tree. That is Christmas."

Eames said his tree sales started quickly.

He sold his first trees as soon as he opened Thanksgiving night and sales were strong Friday.
