Christmas comes back to Lexington as Corman reopens store

Lexington Herald-LeaderAugust 15, 2011 

Corman, known as one of Lexington's most iconic retailers because of its Christmas decorations, is getting back in the holiday business.

From its home on Floyd Drive, the company's showroom will again be stocking Christmas trees, tinsel, ornaments and all the glittering accompaniments that longtime customers remember from their childhoods, said Ted Corman, president of Corman and Associates Inc.

Called The Corman Marketplace: Christmas Traditions Redefined, the new business, which will hold its grand opening Friday and Saturday, is "going back to the traditions that we had here for the last 40 years," Corman said.

"We're going to go back to being the place where grandparents will bring their grandkids to buy an ornament for their Christmas and where people come to ooh and aah for the latest things in Christmas decorations," he said.
