The facility enables the company to execute on new initiatives, secure key merchandise expansion and provides the necessary capital for technology upgrades that will support its growth,” Marc Salkovitz, executive chairman of Handil Holdings, said.

“Marc and his team have a compelling vision for the future success of Christmas Tree Shops. We are excited to be involved in the continuing evolution of the company and we look forward to working with Marc and the entire CTS management team,” David Helmes, managing director of Pathlight, said.
