It was yesterday when these photos were taken, Feb 15, at the local CVS — less than 24 hours after candy hearts and cards were being sold for Valentine’s Day, Feb 14.
What took their place? EASTER “stuff” because it’s coming up (too) soon.
The St. Patrick’s Day cards had a very small section here.
NO chocolate Easter bunnies were out YET. A fellow shopper told me that the local Walmart had already replaced Valentine displays with Easter cards and candy — overnight.
Holidays are VERY short-lived in retailing. But, that’s not so at The Frog & PenguINN where birthday and celebration/holiday cards remain on display for several weeks, sometimes until the next event. We enjoy looking at them and, better yet, remembering the folks who cared enough to send them.
Does it seem to anyone else that holidays end too soon?
