Is September too early to sell Christmas products?

‘Absolutely ridiculous. What the hell,’ one person commented.

Another added: ‘Seriously? It’s not Christmas yet, it’s Spooky Season.’

But others didn’t seem too surprised, saying that Christmas decorations are released every September.

“Last year around this time they started selling Christmas stuff,” one wrote.

‘The market only cares about demand. When people buy, they sell,” another commented.

“I’m okay with this. Some people like to start buying their Christmas stuff early so they can spread the cost over a few months, rather than throwing away a huge sum of money at the end of November,” added another.

A former Kmart employee also jumped into the conversation and provided some clarity.

“I worked at Kmart for a few years, this happens around the same time every year. Halloween and Christmas stock are coming in at the same time,” the ex-employee writes.

“The store has no control over it, so they have to put it outside or it will take up valuable space. Christmas music starts in the shop in mid-October.’
