  • Yeah I can't stand it. By July 4th our stores around here already had their sumer stuff on clearance. And now we have winter clothes out, and halloween stuff too. It is crazy and I hate it.

  • YES!!! My niece and nephew are visiting for a couple of weeks and I took them to the dollar store to get goggles and they had all of this Autumn/Halloween stuff out and it's only July! I know most kids already have their summer gear by now, but I thought they would still have it available.

  • Yes, I hate it. Some places here in TX have Halloween stuff out and all the craft stores have Christmas stuff already. I've seen coats for sale too for pete's sake. It's 105 degrees out!

  • I don't mind it because they have to clearance a lot of things to make room. :)

  • No, I love it. Because you can get the stuff at much better prices off season!

  • I always heard from Marketing Coordinators that the Seasonal displays are dictated by the economy. The worse it is the earlier things come out for display, so that people get a sense of urgency and end up spending more and retailers end up clearancing less....

  • It bothers me in a way because I feel as if I'm behind on my shopping, but a clerk in a store explained to me why they do this. She said that they stay a season ahead of themselves, and when halloween do arrive, their trying to get christams out. I see some christmas items in some of the stores here too, but you guys christmas is 148 days away.
