Probably should start untangling all the lights that were on my jeep last year.....

You do realize it's December, in New England.
Not December in AZ.

 Can't make it... I'll be in NYC for the weekend.

 Quick question though, if we order stuff online for in-store pickup for that day, would someone be able to get it without us there???

I know other stores like Target and Best Buy lets you put someone else’s name down for pickup.  Worst case scenario I can give you my Paypal and go shopping for you. I have no problem spending other people’s money lol

Got my decorating plan together but a change of schedule for the day means I won't be able to get there though until 11:30-12:00.  First time there for it so I didn't know if timing made any difference for parking or anything.

Parking it going to be first come first serve.
We really can't "rope off" an area in front of the store, since it will be open to customers.

What we did last year was shuffle jeeps around when a spot upfront opened up.

I figured there was some parking plan like that. That plaza gets crazy between now and the new year.

Usually they want ID, but if you put a note in the order with my name for pick up and that it's for the TFT event, I can grab it for you and put it in the pile.
