    Lights out now no way! Is this was the case it would be is a violation of the Christmas Act of 2012, Section 12A prohibiting the displaying and selling of Christmas merchandise before October 31st :D

    I have to agree Christmas merchandise seen to be on display earlier and earlier each year!

    huh. I thought I was on a xmas lighting forum... If i had it my way they would be stocked year round. And as a manager of a retail store as I tell my customers - if they didnt sell now they wouldnt be out now. Case in point is Hot Cross Buns in january/ easter eggs, these sell in amazing qty in JAN!!!

    Hey everyone,


    Here on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia there are a few stores with their christmas lights and outdoor decorations in stock. Cheap as Chips have their Inflatables out at the moment in Whyalla and a whole pile of cool solars but they should have some ropelights and 240v Lights in soon. Target has its full range of lights in with sets ranging from about $19 up to about the $70 mark. I'm heading up to Port Lincoln today and I'll be going to Kmart and a few other stores and I will post what I see here later on. I should be heading up to Port Augusta's Big W and Port Pirie's Kmart and I will let you know what i find there.
