We’re still a week away from Halloween, but some stores are already cranking up the Christmas carols and proudly displaying all their Christmas decorations. But it’s just too soon for all that red and green, Christmas is still literally months away.
And one store gets that: Target. As if we needed another reason to love shopping there, they’ve announced a plan to save our sanity by giving Halloween and Thanksgiving their own moment in the spotlight, so they’re not letting Christmas take over the store until after Thanksgiving.
We can thank Target for their initiative to listen to customer feedback, which told them we want “Christmas creep” to slow down. “As it relates to Thanksgiving, we’ve heard from our guests that they want us to celebrate Thanksgiving before moving into the holidays,” a Target spokesperson explains. “So this year, we’ll wait to feature holiday signing at the front entrances of our stores until after Thanksgiving.”
So they’re still going to have Christmas stuff in the store, it just won’t be Christmas hitting you in the face as soon as you walk in - at least not until after turkey day. And for now, we can sit back and sip our Pumpkin Spice Lattes as we take our kiddos trick-or-treating, because ‘tis still the season for that.
