Christmas Place History
Christmas Place and the shops at Bell
Tower Square were founded as a family
Business by Hurshel and Marian Biggs
in 1986. The Bavarian-style shopping village
has since become one of the top ten Christmas
and Collectible stores in the United States.
This premier success story all began as a
small gift store next to the historic Old Mill in
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Since it's humble
beginning, Christmas Place has grown to a
multi-store shopping complex of over 43,000
square feet delighting customers at every turn.
Over the years, the Christmas Place has been
honored for their merchandising and decorating
achievements. Among the awards they have
received is the "NOEL Retailer of the Year" for
a Specialty Store. This annual award recognizes
a company that has achieved outstanding growth and
performance through excellence in merchandising
Christmas products. It also recognizes the significant
contributions to the Christmas Decoration Industry.
Christmas Place has won many awards from the City of
Pigeon Forge in recognition of their indoor, outdoor and
window decorating expertise by entering the seasonal
city-sponsored decorating contests.
Because of the incredible year-round beauty of their
themed-trees and displays, the Christmas Place has been
chosen as the setting for numerous TV specials and
magazine features through the years.
