I saw a post on Facebook last night that rings true.  It said, “October is almost here, which means it’s basically Thanksgiving.  Guys, let’s face it…Christmas is next week!”  It made me laugh, but seriously, it seems every year, we do not even get to Halloween before we begin to see Christmas decorations everywhere!  I recently went to lunch with a dear friend at Cracker Barrel and when we walked into the lobby the first thing we spotted was a gorgeously decorated Christmas tree – one that if I were the Grinch that Stole Christmas, I would be shoving it up the chimney, loading it onto my sleigh, and taking it home (smile).



Since we are in that retail season, I wanted to point out that our annual Holiday Shoppe will be opening tomorrow – shhhhh…it’s a soft opening, so you might want to get there and see all of the wonderful merchandise before the GRAND OPENING and Ribbon Cutting next Thursday, October 6th.

I will tell you, I have gotten a sneak peek (see pictures below) and I am pretty excited about what is on the sales floor.  Also, allow me to give you a little word of advice.  If you are going to one of those “Tacky Sweater” parties, you can definitely find something to wear for that sort of shindig.  You can also find some adorable ornaments, some wonderful gift sets, Christmas trees, lights, garland, stockings, books, Christmas village items and so much more!

So, please, by all means, visit our Holiday Shoppe (400 N. Broad St., Albertville)!  It will be open every week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. through December 17th.
