I just saw a TV commercial for the “Bullseye” store, telling me that “The Holidays are coming!”

In an age when “Back To School Sales” start in early July…and  “Halloween Stores” open right around Labor Day…is it too early for Santa?

It used to be that the Christmas sales (the “holiday” push) started the day after Thanksgiving.

Walking around the store on Friday, if I faced one way, I saw this:

Your thoughts below.
