Target Stores announced lower Christmas sales this holiday.  Big surprise.

It must have been late September when their shelves were full of Christmas items visibly right behind the Halloween items.  Target couldn’t wait for Halloween to get over (not to mention Thanksgiving) so they could pimp Christmas.  When I saw the Christmas items while shopping for Halloween I intentionally bought Halloween items elsewhere.
But then, even before Christmas you could see Target lining up the Valentines Day items on the shelves.  Didn’t know Valentines Day was such a big holiday in comparison.  Target couldn’t wait for Christmas to get over so they could pimp Valentines Day.
When a store is always targeting the next holiday it will be at the expense of the current holiday.
