Buffalo, I see you are a fellow sufferer?
Believe it or not, when I lived on the Big Island Macy's would begin putting out Christmas stuff in August. I was incensed. First time I saw it I have a full cart of stuff my wife wanted. As I approached the checkout I walked past a rather large holiday display with trees, ornaments, music playing, the works. I took my time and went up to the cashier and asked to see a manager, and then explained I was going to put my entire cart back on the shelves where I got the stuff from and would not re-enter the store until the holiday stuff had come down. They actually beat Costco with this display. Costco I understand. They are a wholesaler. But Macy's? Yow.
Anyway....I wrote Macy's and complained and got back a lovely letter back from them that said, in essence, Dear Customer....Tough shite. We make money doing this. You live on an island. Good luck finding someplace else to shop. Love, Macy's. I never went back into the Hawaiian Macy's stores. Lets hear it for mail order!!!!
I love Christmas, even though I am your basic Class A heathen. The day after Thanksgiving is a fine starting day for Christmas stuff in my mind. I am such a fuddy duddy.
Cheers to you from a fellow Holiday sufferer.
