South Carolina Dealership Turns into Santa's Workshop

Mon Dec 5, 2016

ROCK HILL, South Carolina - Bill Gregory is a lot skinnier than Santa Claus. And his wife Terry is far younger than Mrs. Claus.

But they are the Christmas couple in the flesh. They even have a couple of elves.

The work bays at Gregory’s Marine & RV in Rock Hill, which through most of the year are filled with boats for service, will be turned into Santa’s workshop through Christmas. For more than a decade, the shop is where hundreds, maybe thousands, of toys have been assembled for kids who might not get a Christmas gift without them.
