“I went to Costco yesterday and the isles were stuffed with Christmas stuff.”
Wal-Mart here in Mid-Missouri (Columbia) has similarly morphed.
Replaced the four-or-so aisles of lawn/garden goods (inside the main
building) with Christmas, er, “Holiday” goods.
(There’s still lawn/garden stuff in the adjoining garden center...
but Wal-Mart’s pre-emptive switch-over lost them the sale of some
garden soil, mulch and grass seed. I ended up getting what I needed at Ace.)
Damn, that’s funny. The reason I went to Costco was to look for some solar yard/sidewalk lamps I had seen there earlier this year to install on a new boardwalk I built at our home. None to be had, too much space being used for Christmas goodies, most of it junk also. Off to Lowe’s or Home Depot today.
