Elfbot beat me to the USA Today story on Christmas today, but I picked up the paper around 6:45AM and on the front page center bottom a headline blaring "Stores Already Decking the Halls" FRONT PAGE! I couldn't wait until break time to read it.
Make a long story short they gave a breakdown of when stores will have their Christmas decoration sections up and running.
Costco-started Sept. 1
Home Depot- Sept. 19
Kmart & Sears- Sept. 25
Walmart & JCPenney- before the end of the month
Lowe's- Oct. 1
Nordstrom's-after Thanksgiving (they celebrate one holiday at a time)
I can't wait to see the selection this year, I may have to run to Kmart on Sept. 25 to immerse myself in Christmas cheer.
