OK I'm gonna say it. It irritates me that Hobby Lobby picks & choses what is "against their religious beliefs".
(Steps off soap box)

Was in Dollar general & they were putting out Christmas Toys!!! WHAT?! I asked about Halloween & he said maybe a week or 2. I don't get it. They'd sell more at full price if they'd put it out earlier..

I work at Giant Eagle. They should be everywhere now though. All the depots usually get their snack cakes about the same time, so all the salesmen should have them.

My Hubby and I feel the same way. Felt bad even going in. But Halloween must not suffer. I told my Hubby I felt like them having all holiday and fall decor BUT Halloween 40% was some kind of 'religious persecution' of something :p

I LOVE the new focus on Day of the Dead stuff. Maybe it's because I just like skellys but the DotD stuff is just so much more colorful than most Halloween stuff.

I agree. I'm glad we don't have any around where I live in MD. I'd be way too torn between my hatred of the owners & their policies & the cool stuff in the stores :D. I don't think I've ever been in a Hobby Lobby either. There was one in VA Beach near where we stay but it went out of business & now it's a Salvation Army store instead.

Every Sunday Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon in our paper. It cannot be used on items already marked down. So you might check your papers if you are looking for coupons.

I am born and raised on Texas' gulf coast. A part of Texas that once was Mexico. Hispanic culture is a HUGE part of my life (For a 'white girl' :p ) So of course my family is having a love/hate thing with all of the Day of The Dead art. We know of so many REAL Day of The Dead artist that these stores/companies are taking money out of their pockets. Is there a board on here were you can promote artist? Cause if y'all like the stuff I've taken photos of in stores, I know guys that blow that out of the water!

The only halloween store here in So Cal is "Spirit"

Not sure what part of so cal you are in but that's not true. In fact there are several all-year round stores, which being a nor cal person I'm kind of jealous about.

http://www.halloweentownstore.com

http://www.halloweenclub.com/Locations

and of course you have http://www.dappercadaver.com

and http://www.riphalloween.com/stores/ and http://www.shophalloweenadventure.com/storelocations.html

Halloween City, sister holiday store of Party City, will be in so cal. They don't have their store list up yet but here's a link to their website and if you look at the California job listings, you can get a feel for the cities they are filling positions in. The store list should be up soon though. http://www.halloweencity.com

another seasonal store would be http://www.halloweenillusions.com/home.html

I was in Walgreens Saturday; they did not have anything out. I asked the manager when he would be stocking Halloween items and he said they should start putting it out September 22nd. I was so bummed! September 22? He clearly is not a Halloween fan because he was kind of rude about it.
What a bunch of crap he told you. Guarantee they will have their stuff out early September. It would be suicide for them to wait that long.

I service a Walgreens for hallmark and asked last week one of the managers. They already had the candy out! The other stuff will follow soon. I think your store is waiting way too late.
