FRIENDS AND VISITORS! THIS HAS MEANT SOME CHANGES TO OUR 'TYPICAL' CHRISTMAS EXPERIENCE.
Among these are - Social Distancing, More Sanitization of Frequent Contact Points, Hand Sanitizer For All Who Enter, No Ad Hoc Returns, Controlled Access and more. We ask for your patience as we do our best to safely permit access to what is here this season. What about masks? Our staff use them, and we ask you to observe the NEW Region of Waterloo Bylaw that makes their use mandatory indoors. As of Nov 7th however, we will continue to err to the side of CAUTION during the recent increases in infections as a result of Stage 3 re-opening, with firm measures to minimize contact and time spent here.

COVID-19 CHANGES TO CHRISTMAS AT GROBE'S....
Santa's Laugh is Muffled, But His Good Intentions Are Not!
TO ALL FOLKS VISITING GROBE'S CHRISTMAS TREE COUNTRY
To try to keep all visitors and staff safe with the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic this Christmas season, we have completely changed our store access, it's layout, displays, and checkout process to provide more spacewhile indoors. For previous customers, what you may have 'done here before'will be different in orderto make this possible, and we ask for your patience and a little Christmas spirit this season as we show you how to travel GROBE'S CHRISTMAS EXPRESS.
Our FRONT GATE is our new entrance. PLEASE DRESS WARMLY as there will be outside queuing. We promise to do our best to minimize this time outdoors for all who visit.
MASKS are mandatory for ALL visitors (including children) - but as it's cold OUTSIDE...they might actually help you feel the WARMTH of Christmas even sooner!
PLEASE LET ALL FAMILY MEMBERS KNOW that we regrettably will not be offering complimentary Timbits, Cookies or Hot Chocolate to consume on site here this season, and there is no food or drink permitted inside. If you bring your own, remember that washroom access is limited and should be considered for emergencies only.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AND WE WISH YOU ALL A SAFE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!
A WATERLOO REGION TRADITION FOR OVER 45 YEARS ... YOU KNOW... IT'S WHERE ALL THE GOOD TREES ARE!
GROBE'S INDOOR CHRISTMAS TREE COUNTRY YES IT'S TRUE! NOW WITH NEW SAFER TRAFFIC SIGNALS AT HIGHWAY 7
CLICK ON THE PALE PINK STATION TABS ABOVE SO THAT YOU WILL SEE WHAT TO EXPECT.
STATION #1 has our popular gift shop - but there have been some changes. These include:
1) It's possible to select items here, and then either pay and leave directly, OR have them set aside and PAY after visiting the other stations.
2) While it has a cashier - it's no longer the only way to check out.
3) It's NOT possible to go from STATION #1 to STATION #4. If you are not checking out, please exit STATION #1 the same way you entered it.
4) Popular items like Christmas lights, Ribbon, and Christmas Ornaments are NOT in this Station. We've moved them to Station #4 where there is more room and space to browse them.
BEAR IN MIND THAT WITH ITEMS FOUND HERE - SANTA WILL FIND AND TAKE THEM OVER TIME.
(Clicking on an image will enlarge and show image queue)
The Christmas Trees We Are Known For...
STATION #2 is where you will find hundreds of the very best fresh cut Christmas trees. Make your selection from Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir (several styles including Buddy Bear Balsam, Teddy Bear Balsam, Natural Balsam) Scotch Pine and White Pine. Each is displayed indoors in our well lit and highly vented greenhouse, with wide long aisles so that you can distance yourself appropriately.
We also have a wide selection of fresh live Christmas trees too. These are not fresh dug and stuck in a pot, but rather fully rooted plants that have the best chance to handle the stresses of being indoors at Christmas, and planted outside thereafter. The best way on how to do this that we have found can be downloaded here.
You will also find here a great selection of fresh evergreen wreaths as well, in Fir and Pine.
Enough to inspire you...
STATION #3 has many of the elements you might look to use for decorating your home at Christmas.
Items found here include:
fresh evergreen garlands and roping
pine cones of different sizes and styles
fresh boughs and branches of all kinds
decorative 'bling' and picks for DIY urns and pots
STATION #4 has lots going on and you will want to see it! But there are a few things you should know...
1) If you have a Christmas Tree, just inside Station #4 is where your tree will receive a claim check tag and be put on our trolley to Bigfoot's Baling Station. Your tree will be taken from you at this point, to be claimed after 'The Last Stop' at the baling station.
2) If you have fresh greens, garlands or urn inserts from Station #3, this same Tagging Station is where these will be processed too.
2) You will find many popular items on either side of the Station hall. This includes ornaments, ribbons, bows, Christmas lights, tree stands and other things too.
3) Please be mindful of the trolley way, and remember your social distancing as you progress to 'The Last Stop'.
4) All items to be purchased, including anything held from Station #1 being reclaimed, will be settled at 'The Last Stop'.
REMEMBER... WHEN YOU REACH THE LAST STOP, THE ONLY WAY FORWARD... IS HOME.
Please help us to help others.
For only a toonie Grobe's staff will put your fresh cut Christmas tree through our custom mesh tree baler. This makes the tree easier to transport, store, bring into the house and easier to erect in your tree stand.
In 1994 Grobe's decided to donate the proceeds from this tree baling to KidsAbility to assist their goal in helping local children and young adults with developmental, physical and communication disabilities. Their facilities in both Kitchener and Waterloo (shown below) are heavily used by families from both Waterloo and Wellington Counties, and it continues to require funding to assist in their work.
Since inception, Grobe's and our guests have helped raise over $64,000 for this worthy cause.

DECORATING CONTAINER ACCENTS Grobe's expanded Christmas Decorating Center has an extensive collection of fresh greens, branches, boughs, garlands, unique pot filling 'bling' and much more to help you create unique seasonal decorator accents for your home.
SO... HOW MUCH DO YOUR FRESH CUT TREES COST?
It Might Sound Funny .. But It Really Depends! Unlike an outdoor tree lot, each tree we offer at Grobe's is graded by our own experienced tree graders by variety, shape, colour, size and closeness to perfection. In general, trees that last the longest are more expensive, bigger trees cost more than smaller ones, and perfect looking trees are worth more to some folks than others with growing imperfections. Each combination of variables will affect the price of the tree. Someone wanting a 5' tree with long needles to put up for a couple of weeks in a corner can expect a different 'price range' than someone wanting a 7.5' tree in the middle of a room that needs to be up for 5 weeks.
The reason we sell so many trees is that we make it easy for you to find that tree which is perfect for your particular needs - including your budget!

EXCLUSIVE TO GROBE'S ! SKINNY PETE FRASER FIR
Hi! I'm Peter Grobe - and for 45 years we've been a part of many local family Christmas traditions.
I want to thank you for making a Grobe Christmas tree one of them.
People love the look, smell and aroma of our quality Fraser Firs... but sometimes you don't just have the space for an average sized tree. We've got a solution!
Our Skinny Pete Fraser Firs are a specially grown Fraser Fir trimmed for years to a full, slender form. It is soft to the touch, nice to decorate, will last up to 5 weeks indoors, and will look amazing!
I invite you to visit Grobe's SOON to see these trees, and choose one for yourself. Or, choose one of the thousands of other trees we have to offer.
You won't be disappointed, as I know here is 'Where All The Good Trees Are'.
Why We KNOW... It's Where All The Good Trees Are!
