North Pole City – Our Story
David Green, owner of North Pole City, always loved the Christmas season. A former ceiling fan shop owner in the 1980s, Mr.Green needed to open a business that would supplement his ceiling fan business, and compete with big-box stores. His fondness for the Christmas season became the concept and inspiration to open “The Christmas Shop” in the early 1980s – which would later become North Pole City.
North Pole City has become a year round online store and a retail store is open September through January.
Months in advance of each retail shop season, the Green family and their employees are busier than Santa’s elves setting up a winter wonderland and holiday theme throughout the store. The setting rivals vast displays in the biggest of cities and stores, with dozens of festive trees adorned with the season’s latest ornaments.
Figurines and collectibles are set up and displayed throughout the shop, greeting customers with the scene of Christmas, and the infectious cheer of North Pole City’s happy employees warms the heart of even the toughest of scrooges.
Mr.Green’s dream of building a Christmas store into business continues to bring joy to customers and families, each and every year.
