Christmas Tree Shop sells seasonal items and gifts, home décor items, small indoor and outdoor furniture and accessories, gardening supplies, carpets, curtains and rugs, food and drinks, toys and party items. And That! by Christmas Tree Shops has been described as a "Christmas Tree Shop on steroids."

World Market sells furniture, accessories, home décor, candles, food and drink items and international food products.
