Selling Christmas before Thanksgiving


Jan Washburn: “Avoiding the box stores with their junk and Christmas music. Shopping local. Jay, NY, this weekend! Youngs Gallery, The Jay Craft Center. Sales and beautiful handmade gifts. Lots of choices to shop local everywhere. Find them.”

Margaret Balko: “If the businesses did not find it effective (more income), it wouldn’t happen. People must be buying.”

Helen Gervais Butchino: “It is corporate greed ... it seems like all retail stores forget about the Thanksgiving holiday and just go right to Christmas ... so so sad.”

Ann Jason Whalen: “I think that is way too early, just like the way they bring out bathing suits in January :/”

Noreen Barcomb: “I can handle the decorations and merchandise although I don’t like it but I HATE the Christmas music before December.”

Don LaPoint: “I think retailers can do whatever they feel like to grow their business.”

Jason Thompson: “I say way too early but companies are becoming greedy. I preach to mine all the time; it’s not about what you get for xmas, it’s the thought behind it, and it’s about time with your family. People seem to have forgotten this.”

Jennifer Larmon Hicks: “It is way too much. I keep waiting for Christmas to become a year-round department in stores. I also agree that stores should not be open on Thanksgiving. Whatever happened to spending quality time at home with your family?”

Toni Infante Anderson: “I like it; it makes me happy.”
