At first I thought it was an aberration, a slip up on the part of a Crate and Barrel store manager this past Sunday; I put it out of my mind as quickly as it found its way in there. But tonight, at the Container Store, I knew it was more than that when Shannon pointed it out: Christmas music, dripping out of the ceiling speakers, wafting from aisle to aisle. I mean, seriously, is the first weekend of November really time to start assaulting your customers with silver bells and dreams of white Christmases? Might this be a bit premature?
