Christmas stock now in some UK shops.

A full four-and-a-half months before presents are exchanged, London department store Selfridges has put its annual Christmas range on sale. Skip related content
Related photos / videos





Customers can rush to buy baubles and stock up on decorations from the Yuletide shop this year earlier than ever before.
The flagship first run of Christmas goods is traditionally sold from the end of August.
The store defended its decision to bring the launch forward, insisting: "We wouldn't (do) it now unless we thought there was a market for it."
With baubles adorned with Union flags as well as "We Love England" and "We Love London" slogans, Selfridges is openly coveting the buoyant tourist trade.
A spokeswoman said the state of the British pound meant more and more visitors were spending their cash in the store.
It is too early to know how much demand there will be for Christmas decorations when the temperature in the capital is 23C.
Customers escaping the heat will not yet be forced to shop to a background of festive songs on loop.
But artificial trees on sale in bright pink and bright purple left few in doubt that Christmas has come early to the capital.
Selfridges is set to widen its release of goods over the coming months.
A broader array of festive stock will arrive in late September, when all the Christmas ranges start to appear around the store.
Christmas shops at Selfridges' Manchester and Birmingham branches will then follow at the beginning of October.
Real trees will be available for the first time this year, in December of all months.

haha...how cool...but to me it´s kinda makes sense....these things....deocrations I mean are more expensive...so it makes sense to offer it earlier...so people don´t have to buy in November, when all the stuff (presents and on) is the thing to buy

We all need a little bit of Christmas cheer in today's economic blunders.... Why not stock up early and plan ahead for your holiday season, so you can sit back and enjoy instead of running around like a mad man trying to get things done..... that's it... I'm moving to England!

I shop all year for Christmas, so for me this is not to early at all. Sadly, I have not seen any store here yet with Christmas stock out. I think that it is because we are still waiting for summer to start.!

Customers escaping the heat will not yet be forced to shop to a background of festive songs on loop.
forced to listen to Christmas music??? That just happens to be one of my favorite things when shopping for Christmas thank you very much!

I think that it is a good idea to put christmas stuff out early. If people see it in the stores they are forced to think of it and maybe they will start to plan and start to save money for it so they don't have to run up alot of debt when they realize after thansgiving that christmas is a month away and they haven't bought anything yet. There will also be people like the lady who was in hobby lobby the other day and complaining because they had christmas stuff out already. When I told her that we were only 140 days away she rudely said that she didn't care and that she will worry about christmas come december and not a day earlier.

Hobby Lobby is getting into full Christmas swing, too! We went in Saturday. The foyer is lined with Christmas trees, and there are at least 6 full aisles of Christmas decorations.

I walked in the Christmas area for 30 minutes, humming "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas". It really started to feel like it!
