I saw this today at Kmart. It's just the same thing they always do at this time of year. I've said it before and I will say it again--it's too early for Christmas stuff at the end of September. But what I saw today is definitely appalling.
Just not right. You have to wonder if this was a prank done by a customer. For an employee to do it, it would constitute laziness. The Christmas stuff can wait another month. A true nightmare before Christmas, and it's not even Halloween yet. They just barely put out the Halloween and are doing Christmas now. Sheesh.
And on a side note, the citizens of our town have to wonder how Kmart is going to do against the Spirit Halloween store. Out town got one of those stores for the first time in about 15 years. This may be a small town, but Spirit has Goodwill, Kmart and Target to compete with. Though Target has fewer costume options--mostly ones for kids and dogs. And the Spirit selection seems a little better than that at Kmart. I've already visited the Spirit store at least four times since it opened almost two weeks ago. Still haven't bought anything, but there is still time.
Please, don't make us worry about Christmas yet. And no ore pranks like this one.
