I guarantee I'll be walking out of your shop at the hint of away in a manger and will support stores who are interested in keeping their customers and not scaring them away! :-)

I agree completely. I usually wait at the bus stop outside Kircaldies when I travel home each evening and I'm getting sick of being subjected to the annoying Christmas music that they have playing through speakers in the overhead shelter.

I could not agree more! However some of us retailers do not have
much any choice in the matter...

I do not know the words to any christmas songs asides from jingle bells batman smells robin ran away.
I was at Sylvia park Friday and bought $300 worth of clothing as well as fitted a suit,, from the only 2 stores that were void of christmas carols. (the other shop was so bad I could not even go there to buy the RTR countdown shirt I wanted.)
Play them in the week leading up to christmas maybe but not way back in November ARGH!!!!!
And remember, buy Kiwi-made this Christmas. (Which means you can totally avoid The Warehouse)

We have the radio on, can't help it if they play carols? They were threatening to play the first carol of the year back in February, from memory... Sometimes I would like to shoot the radio!

What? Is Christmas coming? I hadn't noticed. ;-) @paradoxsm - ironically The Warehouse have posters up saying they proudly support Kiwimade.
