Retailers Facing Criticsm As Christmas Products Hit The Shelves

Some consumers are angry with retail outlets and supermarkets, who have already stocked shelves with Christmas products, 3 months before the festive season.

Several stores in Wicklow and throughout the country have decorations and Christmas food items on their shelves, while consumer experts are now encouraging people to get their Christmas shopping done early.

Covid-19, Brexit, global supply chain issues, a shortage of computer chips and truck drivers in the UK, are being highlighted as reasons for people to begin shopping for Christmas early this year.
