On December 27th, two entire days after Christmas, I went grocery shopping.
Can you believe there were no Valentine’s Day cards out yet? Our retail outlets are failing us.
What will become of those who did all their Christmas shopping on November 4th (just in time to enjoy the all-Christmas all-the-time radio programming)? The ones who didn’t have to take advantage of the “last minute shopping sales” on December 1st? These sweet folks truly want to stimulate the economy, but there’s nothing for them to buy!
Please, please, O Retailers — please put out your Valentine’s displays. We Americans truly need eight weeks of red hearts, red heart-shaped boxes, mile-long racks of cards with red envelopes, and boxes of cartoon characters telling us how much they love us.
