Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) — This year, some Christmas enthusiasts are starting to take advantage of shopping, but the store encourages it for a pandemic.
Since 1946, Philips Stoimart has provided a Christmas smile.
Co-owner Powell Phillips said, “Last month it was up 17% compared to last year. I think a significant percentage of people buy a little earlier at Christmas. I certainly recommend it to them.” Told.
Phillips said he had already stocked up toys, games and sock stuffing for the holiday season.
“It’s frankly wise because I don’t know what’s going to happen. There may be another round,” Phillips said. “And more shutdown-type, and hopefully not, and it doesn’t look that bad, but you just don’t know.”
In the clothing world, some shoppers are faster than usual. Rose Stewart said, “The other day I thought October was the new December, but if I start shopping now, I think December will be less crowded. It’s safer to shop less. COVID- People around by 19. “
At Hillsboro Village’s Posh Boutique, we take safety measures seriously. “We’re still doing things like curbside pickups, so we hope we can increase our online sales during the holiday season,” Stewart said.
During the first shutdown, the supply chain was a roller coaster, but it’s working on its own. “For some reason, it’s hard to get men’s clothing, but you can always get it when you see a Risor wipe in the store,” Stewart said.
In most cases, the store was able to replenish its inventory.
“I’m thrilled. I’m ready for the holiday season and hopefully I can finish it powerfully,” Stewart said.
Target, Macy’s, and Best Buy launched before Black Friday to encourage early Christmas shopping in some places. Amazon also had a great day trading in October.
