EUGENE, Ore. - Kathryn Decarlow cannot believe the isles are already decked with holiday ornaments and decorations.

"It makes you want hot chocolate and apple cider," Decarlow said.

While the shopper is hunting for some tree ornaments, she cannot help but feel like it is a little early for Christmas shopping and decorating.

"I mean they started putting stuff out before Halloween which I think is a little ridiculous," Decarlow said.

But it is not just the decorations coming out early.

Target in Springfield is expecting shoppers to come out earlier than ever before this year, as they prepare to open their doors at midnight.

J. R. Willis is a bartender from Eugene who normally stays up into the early hours of the morning and goes shopping right after work every year on Black Friday. This year, however, his wait will not be as long.

"I think it will be helpful for the people who want to just stay up and who are used to being up at midnight and not necessarily 4 or 5 in the morning," Willis said.

Willis said the extra early hours will give him time to get extra deals this Black Friday.

"I've saved a lot of money on Black Friday," Willis said.

Decarlow said she feels the hustle and bustle is starting earlier than necessary.

"The only complaint that I have is that it does kind of make December a little less special when it's out for like three months," Decarlow said.

But the shopper said she still cannot resist going down the Christmas isle when she sees it.

"I don't know i kind of enjoy it," Decarlow said.

Valley River Center in Eugene will also be opening their doors at midnight on Black Friday.
