It's always sorta amazed me that WalMart so quickly obliterates any sign of the Christmas season just ended. Go in there on the 26th, and all the signs, decorations, etc. are down, and most of seasonal merchandise has been moved out. Anyone with insights, etc. on why this is the case?

I worked at a national retailer and our store packed seasonal leftovers up and sent them to a specific store for their clearance. It was always to the same store. Maybe WalMart operates in the same way, and you just happen to shop at a feeder store?

No other legitimate reason I suppose other than commercialism and extending the buying season to spur people to purchase.
Product goes to liquidation channel, make room for new merchandise.

Margin on holiday merch after a holiday is very very low (or negative). Why keep "worthless" product around taking up merchandising space when new merch can/will sell and actually make money? They must have contracts in place to liquidate unsold holiday quickly or perhaps some kind of RTV or consignment style scenario that prevents in-store clearance sales for holiday specific wares. I suppose only an insider would know for sure, but the obvious answer is that they make more money this way.
