Last week My wife and I dropped over to a local small box store (Fred Meyers) to pick up a few things for the late Summer / early Fall garden, only to find the entire garden section bare. What?
I asked an employee what was the deal and was told they were making room for the Christmas things, which are on the way. It’s bloody August, and they’re getting ready to put out Christmas stuff?
I don’t know about you, but I sure as hell don’t celebrate Christmas in August, or September, or even October or November. I’ve had to accept holiday stuff in November, before Thanksgiving, but in August and early September for heaven’s sake? No, no, no!
It’s time these buyers and managers of such stores decided to serve the needs of the CUSTOMER and not their own calendars. Bah. We went down the street a mile and got what we needed at Lowe’s.
