On one side of the aisle is V-day the other side is St P-day. It's no more crazy than CIJ.

I have no problem however with swinsuits out all year - many do winter vacations to nice very warm tropical climates and if we can't find new swimsuits in January or February then we're totally out of luck looking great on the Northwest coast of any tropical island!!!!!!!

Maybe it was a warning, if you eat the Vaentine's candy, you won't fit in the swimwear! LOL

I can't believe anyone is surprised!?!?  Retailers always advertise far in advance.  It's the nature of the beast.

I saw the swimsuits in Target and thought it was a display for resort wear.  This has often been sold in dept. Stores this time of year for those who vacation in warmer climates, take cruises. Etc.

Makes sense to me. Valentine's day is about six weeks away. Bathing suits are out for people going on vacation.

 

I'm not sure what people expect the stores to do with their seasonal area. They have an area specifically set aside for seasonal and they need to fill it.

That's the way retailers roll these days, I could care less, it doesn't tempt me to buy early or at all.

I live in NJ and was grocery shopping in Target today.  I passed the Valentine's display and swimsuits. C'mon!! 🤔


@Lisa Y   Many people take vacations during the winter in warm climates.

 

I don't mind the Valentine displays.  We bought something for granddaughter already.

 

So sue me already.  LOL  Woman Tongue
