Christmas in July: Stores are already focused on the holidays

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

It's hard to think about Christmas when we're still in the triple digits, but that's exactly what one valley store is doing.

"We know Christmas is going to be here, but we want to get ahead of it," said Beth DeFalvo.

Cynthia Sanchez adds, "It's a little bit weird because it is so hot outside and you're thinking about Christmas and it's cozy cold and I'm trying to shop for Christmas in July."

Hobby Lobby is taking one of the world's most celebrated holidays and turning it into just a complete Christmas extravaganza, but does that ease some of those sweltering temperatures we experience here in the valley?

"Making wreaths a lot of times for the front doors and decorating a lot of times.. it's on sale early so you can get it," said DeFalvo.

"I'm doing a photo shoot -- a Christmas photo shoot and I'm looking for bright colors, pinks, greens and things like that," said Sanchez.

Getting your cool fix and a jump on that Christmas shopping list.

You can check out the holiday finds at any Hobby Lobby location.
