Yes, there is still months away until Christmas in 2014 arrives. However, funny enough a ton of Christmas items from last year are going on sale now from various businesses in hopes to dump all the stock that they couldn’t sell back in 2013. For the most part these are things like Christmas lights and decorations. As well, truckloads of candy it seems.
Some of the candy might not be too bad of an idea as many of them last for awhile. I know so many people that simply buy them as stocking stuffers where stores mark up the prices during the holiday season since many don’t care about the prices. This is one of those things that are way too long-term so most likely not many people will shop now simply to save money later. Usually it’s the people that run businesses that buy them all for cheap hopefully to then resell it later for more. It can be good if you are a small business as ironically it can be cheaper to buy them at the big stores due to the buying power they have.
I know some smaller businesses do that for like laptop computers where they buy the items from other large businesses when they know they are selling it at a loss on top of the cheaper rate they get due to the volume they buy. Good time to find deals.
