Stats -- The Ultimate in Christmas Wonder

Growing up we had a store in town called Stats It was a home decorating store. Every Christmas they did an awesme Christmas display, one of which i have only seen rivaled at a year-round Christmas store. They had an area in front that they dedicated solely to Christmas trees. They did theme trees with the ornaments they would sell. In the back of the store they had a room with just Christmas lights and another with ornaments. They also had a nice collection of Dept 56 Christmas villages. When the collection was small they would do a mountain village up one large wall, complete with the mountain extending all the way up to the ceiling. It was awesome!

In addition to the awesome displays and mass amounts of Christmas decor they also had one awesome after-Christmas sale! The day after Christmas they advertised as opening about 4am, but they were open even earlier than that!! And everything in the store was 50% off. Not just the Christmas stuff- EVERYTHING!!!! It was awesome.

Unfortunately, Stats in Whittier closed down several years ago. There are still a couple stores still in business, though. Here are some pictures from their website..
