Manufacturers, Retailers Testing it All for Christmas


“ Now you listen to me, young lady! Even if we're *horribly mangled*, there'll be no sad faces on Christmas.”The Grinch, “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas,” Universal Pictures, 2000
We’ve wrapped up the last of our summer vacations, the kids are back at school and it’s time for your first sighting of a pre-holiday ad or online/in-store Christmas decoration.  Don’t worry, retailers have been thinking about it for you.
