Re: Shoppers Drug Mart stops (for now) playing Xmas music
This is one situation where the US has a leg up on us, as it seems to me that their retailers don't get a huge Christmas push going until after their Thanksgiving (with the usual Black Friday sales etc). It's bad enough when it starts right after Remembrance Day, but on All Saints Day (aka All Hallows Day, aka Nov 1st)? That's going a bit far.
Then again, the Christmas tree/paper/bows/etc aisle has been set up at Costco since mid August.
