Christmas-Friendly Shopping, pt. II

Focus on the Family has generously gathered info on more Christmas-friendly stores (those who use Christmas in their ads and throughout the store, not "holidays" or "seasons" alone).

I am adding Ace Hardware to that list. I heard a commercial on the radio which said something to the effect of, "We know finding Christmas gifts can be difficult..." So, if you are in the market to buy any kind of electrical device, tools, paint supplies or anything of the like, please consider Ace Hardware. You'll notice I am not endorsing either Lowe's or Home Depot.

Here's Focus on the Family's list:

"Christmas-friendly" retailers — prominent acknowledgment of "Christmas"

Bass Pro Shops*
Bed, Bath & Beyond
Best Buy
Cabela's

This is very good to know...I DO buy all my paints at the Depot, though...but NOT any Christmas gifts.

You might figure that Barnes and Noble would be on the "other" list ... I do love that place, though .... you can get a Starbucks and sit and lounge there with books and mags ... it's a great date night

I always love your comments and I loved our short visit ... are you coming back for the holidays..hehe

My Dad always did say, as long as I can remember, that he loathed the xmas thing.
He was ahead of his time.

I even love the sound of the word Christmas.

I'm rambling now ...stay in touch
I love you, too
and I kinda like my hair up, too.
I have these really nice extentions I'll show you when I see you.
