Recently an article was posted on Fox News affiliated website out of Greensboro, NC that talked about Christmas goods being sold before Halloween! The article maintains that store managers are being asked for the items before Halloween and so to appease demand, they are relenting and stuffing their shelves full of Christmas cheer, BEFORE HALLOWEEN! Although I don’t mind because I love Christmas, it does seem a bit early for the average consumer. As retailers, brick and mortar retailers that is, I’m certain they are looking to infuse their businesses with Christmas cash as soon as they can get it. Knowing they’ve had a tougher time in recent years with consumer spending being down, who can blame them.

How about you – when do you think it’s the best time to start shopping for Christmas?

When should stores starting putting out Christmas goods?

Let us know what you think!
