Local business flipping the script on thieves

Posted: Updated:

A Mobile business is flipping the script on thieves targeting holiday decorations. 

Big City Toys on Old Shell road has placed little Christmas trees in front of the store. There's a Grinch-themed note on them that tells people to take the trees if they need some Christmas cheer. There's also a sign on their door.

The store decided to do this after employees heard so many stories about decorations being stolen. 

"Everyone's so focused on getting gifts gifts gifts gifts gifts, a lot of people don't have trees. So we were like, you know what we could do, we could have a little fun tree drive and just have little trees for people who are in need or not able to have trees, or who are needing a pick me up, or someone who needs a major pick me up can come up here and grab them and just have that fun Christmas spirit," said Kristi Houseknecht. 

As soon as all of the trees are gone, the store will put more out. The owner says it's just their way of giving back this year.
