The encroachment begins every year. The end of Summer means it's time for back to school shopping, deals and a return to the classroom. Have Treasure Valley retailers gone too far by displaying Halloween items in mid August?Have you noticed the signs that Halloween is just around the corner?  Costumes, jack o lanterns, and party gifts have hit the local shelves of area retailers.  Isn't is a little too soon?  We're still in the month of August and a week away from Labor Day.  I doubt anyone is in the mood for Pumpkin Pie yet, although anytime is a good time for Pumpkin Pie.

Will Fall/Halloween decorations encourage you to buy early?  Or should retailers wait until mid September to bid Summer goodbye?  Vote here!
