write this, the season of autumn is just beginning.
Literally, it is only the first day of fall yet retailers
are trying their hardest to get us to get into the holiday
shopping mode. Why do they try to rush the season so
much? And why does it seem like every year the holiday
shopping frenzy is forced upon us earlier and earlier? For
goodness sake, there are 90 something shopping days left
until Christmas. What's the big rush??? There are several
theories out there as to why retailers try to get us to
start our holiday shopping so early and here's what some are
saying about this year in particular.
came off of the
Back to School shopping season which had
sales that were disappointing to say the least. So in order
to make up for those disappointing sales, retailers need to
have better holiday sales numbers. If the season is longer,
the sales may be better. Folks may be able to spread their
spending out over several billing cycles rather than get hit
with all of their holiday shopping charges all at once.
Seems to make sense to me, but will it be a successful
strategy? On the other hand, We've all heard about the sad
state of our current economy and everyone seems to be
affected by it. So will that cause shoppers to set stricter
budgets for their holiday shopping? Will holiday shoppers
really be able to limit their spending? Only time will
