B&M have released their popular Christmas stockings- and fans joked that ‘Halloween hasn’t happened yet’

Budget retail chain B&M have brought back their highly-popular Christmas personalised stockings and sacks- just in time for the festive season. On Instagram, the retailer’s official page displayed a range of red stockings and sacks with personalised initials on a B&M store shelf.

The post revealed the photo alongside the caption: “BACK IN STOCK!! Make sure Father Christmas knows who’s who with these adorable personalised stockings and sacks this Christmas!” The caption added: “Hands up if you’re excited for Christmas!?”

Since the post’s debut yesterday (September 22), it has already garnered 1,822 likes and 98 comments by fans and shoppers alike. Many users headed to the comments section to share their range of opinions on the new drop, as one wrote: “Got ours today but the grey ones! So soft and lovely!”

Another added: “Are you having the grey ones back in stock like last year? I'm pregnant and will need another to match the 4 I already have?” Meanwhile a third user chimed in: “How pretty are these !!!! I need them.”

There were shoppers who also shared their woeful difficulties finding stockings and sacks designed with their specific initials in their local B&M. One user argued: “Wish you would stock more Z products, my little girl is called Zara and I can never seem to find any” while another agreed by writing: “You never do a Z in anything. My daughter never has anything with her initial on. Sort it out please make a 6 year old happy”

Another disgruntled customer even chimed in to say the following: “What a shame there not double letters so many kids have 2 names”

In addition, others were even shocked B&M would retail the Christmas sacks… in September. One user joked: “Calm down Halloween hasn’t even happened yet” while another concurred: “NOOOOOOOOOO!! We want Halloween!!!”
