Dollar store fail

I walked into Dollar General today and found a whole aisle of Halloween crap for sale. Almost got kicked out for telling the workers I wanted the heads of their corporate bosses on a platter. August 15th. August 15th, people!!! Two and a half months before Halloween. It's criminal.

one of the two Dollar Stores here has started putting out Halloween stuff too. I don't mind Halloween so much, as it gives me time to plot and decorate...but when they start putting out Christmas in Sept/Oct, I really start having issues.

Absolutely -- last year they started putting up an aisle of Christmas stuff right next to the Halloween aisle, in early October. It cheapens the holiday: Hangin's too good for 'em.

Good point! But I think I'd exempt any store that dealt in arts and crafts type stuff from my mandatory slash-and-burn law.

The local Dollar General here has had Halloween candy and decorations out since the end of last month! I don't see why they need to put out holiday stuff months in advance.

It makes no sense -- cheapens the holiday and probably gives them no more sales over the long run.

I dunno, man. Maybe you're right that it has become a marketing ploy over the years.

Dude, the last time I went to Hobby Lobby for more drawing supplies, they already have Christmas stuff out for sale. Including trees. Not crafts to assemble, full blown Christmas stuff.

Sometimes I think having a calendar is meaningless.

Without a calendar, I wouldn't know when to complain ...

Dude, probably 20% of the local Hobby Lobby store was done up in Xmas stuff for sale. This was last week. LAST WEEK!!!!

I don't know as the holiday has been cheapened so much as our culture has.

Yes -- or maybe both? The culture started it, I suppose.
