You've probably noticed the fall decorations out at local stores and it's not even fall yet. But, have you also noticed that some stores are already talking about Christmas?
It's true, we sent WZZM 13's Sarah Sell to see what was up with the seasonal decor.
Her first stop was Hobby Lobby. That's where she found plenty of fall decor and Christmas decorations. Maralene DeBoer was shopping for a tree. "It's still summer, but there's some good sales going on. It's a good time to buy before the big rush."
There were lots of Christmas trees, ornaments, and stockings. "I found a Christmas pine tree that would fit in my living room. It's perfect", says DeBoer.
Next stop was Wal Mart, where the retail giant announced it's hot toy list this week. There were no decorations, but plenty of reminders that they have layaway for the holidays.
Big Lots is also in the process of putting out it's decorations. The displays weren't completely ready, but well on their way.
Back at Hobby Lobby, Maralene says it's not about the time of year, but finding good sales, and beating the crowds. "I don't think that it's too early. Time flies. You got to hit the sales where you can."
