The store shelves already display ornaments and lights for Christmas trees…
MERIDA — In the Yucatecan capital, both the big chains and small businesses started selling products related to the December holidays, more than two months before the celebrations: Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year’s.
According to Milenio Novedades, the stores’ shelves are now “full” of decorative items, Christmas trees and other ornaments, but not many items allusive to the “Day of the Dead” can be found, even when it is the next holiday in the calendar.
“So far we do not have an estimate of the economic spill expected for the sales related to the end of the year, because we are waiting for the resolutions of the Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), however, a positive season is visualized in sales,” said Juan José Abraham Dáguer, president of the National Chamber of Commerce Services and Tourism.
Following the “El Buen Fin” program, the CANACO expects businesses to increase their campaigns to attract customers, offering discounts and gifts in the purchase of products and in some cases activating promotions of “no interest monthly payments”.
Many commercial establishments in Merida downtown are already featuring items related to the Christmas holiday season and they are planning to allocate even more spaces for those products, for which prices start to increase by the end of November.
