Almighty dollar means more than holiday to retailers

October 20, 2013 12:00 am

Here go the stores again. It's not even Halloween, and the stores are decorating for Christmas.

Commercials on TV, and store chains cashing in way too early on the consumer.

Once again, it's not about the true meaning of the holidays. As for these brain-dead, greedy retailers, it's about the almighty dollar, and probably they'll be open on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, staying open 'til midnight or 24 hours.

I guess the almighty dollar is more important than the sacred holidays.

The store owners are sharks, and you consumers are bleeding victims in the water.
