WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Putting up Christmas lights with your family has been a time-honored tradition for years. Now there are businesses offering to do all the dirty work for you.
Decorating the outside of your home or business for the holidays looks great when finished, but to some people it's a time consuming chore they would rather just have someone else do for them.
The Christmas Light Pros have been offering services in seasonal light displays around the country since 1998. This is the first year the company has a franchise in Wilmington.
So far, co-owner Keith Register says business is booming. He attributes the success to the convenience his business offers to customers.
"Fear of heights, and the headache and the hassle of pulling out Christmas lights. The decorations are usually stored in a tangled mess, so we come and provide everything from lights to extension cords to timers," Register said.
Register says the price of service depends on the length of lights used and the difficulty factor of putting up the decorations. He says the size and elevation of the house or business determines the difficulty factor.
Register and his girlfriend co-own the franchise and started decorating November 1.
