COLUMBUS, Ind. — It's October, about a week before Halloween. But in local stores, the occasional snowman peeks out from behind the displays of ghouls, and a Christmas tree sparkles near pumpkins.
It's that way at independently owned shops and at the national chain stores.
Either place, the holidays present a significant portion of a business' receipts.
Please read Friday's edition of The Republic for more details.
