Santa Claus came to town this week ...

It's not even Thanksgiving yet!
Santa Claus came to town this week, arriving at both Tucson Mall and Park Place with the hope of drawing kids, and presumably their shopping parents, to their stores.

Retailers nationwide have jump-started the season early this year out of fear that rising gas prices, depreciating home values and other economic woes will cut shoppers' spending later.
Why this should "cut shoppers' spending later" but not now escapes me?
