Christmas Tree Shops are a retail chain which was founded in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts on Cape Cod in 1970 as a complex of three small stores; the Front Shop, the Back Shop, and the Barn Shop. The multiple store location, which was located on Route 6A, explains why the name is Christmas Tree Shops instead of Christmas Tree Shop.

The chain’s was founded by Doreen and Chuck Bilezikian. Since the 1980s, the chain has slowly been expanding beyond Cape Cod. As of May 2011 the company has stores in eighteen states (including all six New England states). Expansion for the chain has included stores in the Midwestern states of Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. Its newest stores opened in Augusta, Georgia; Dallas, Texas; and Greensboro, North Carolina.

The original stores are seen as a local phenomenon, since it has become a must see destination for many visitors when traveling to Cape Cod. Christmas Tree Shops was acquired by Bed Bath and Beyond in 2003, though the Bilezikians remain involved in the chain’s executive operations. The original stores on Route 6A were closed January 2007. Some of the earlier Cape Cod locations, such as the store in West Dennis, are far smaller in size than more recently-built stores.
