"Go ahead and boycott the company, though. Shorter line ups AND not having to deal with Christmas music 7 freaking weeks before the day,.... BONUS!!!" Cassandra Nadeau wrote.
So when is the right time for Christmas music in stores?
Many of those commenting on Facebook said retailers should wait until after Remembrance Day, Canada's equivalent of Veterans Day in the U.S., which Canada will mark on Nov. 11 or 12, depending on the province.
"The Respect for those Veterans during Veteran's week and Remembrance day should not have to be in competition with Rudolph and Frosty," wrote Tanya Murray.
While the chain is not giving a definitive date when Christmas music will return, it's certainly not forsaking the season.
Check the chain's website and the first thing you'll see is an offer to sign up to win a $2,000 holiday shopping spree. The offer expires Dec. 3 -- plenty of time to shop before Christmas.
