While you may be complaining about seeing Halloween costumes and candy displays in stores, just wait until November 1. Almost magically, Halloween displays will disappear and the holiday season will be in full swing.
Who waits till Black Friday anymore? Certainly not retailers. It is almost like we are lucky that kids love Halloween candy as much as retailers like money. If that wasn’t the case, the holiday season would begin promptly after Labor Day; 80 degree weather and all. But make no mistake, retailers are perfecting their game plans as they watch parents and kids go Halloween shopping. Since they are plotting, so should you. Beginning with this post, we will periodically give holiday shopping tips so that consumers don’t get themselves into trouble.
