Coles supermarket under pressure to take down ‘frightening’ Halloween displays

0 4

A group of mums have called on Coles supermarket to reconsider putting “scary” and “frightening” Halloween displays in its stores.

Sharing on Facebook, one mother reached out to the retail giant to say that she felt the “dark” gravestone and skull decorations at her local Brisbane store were too much for young children.

Several other Facebook users agreed with the mum’s post, with one saying that a Coles display had given her son “extremely bad nightmares”.

Another parent said they avoid taking their kids to stores in October because of the “hideous, scary displays”.

The calls come just days after Woolworths removed a “creepy” display of ghoulish figurines hanging from the ceiling at one WA store following after another mother raised similar concerns.

The issue has sparked debate on social media, with many defending the supermarkets’ Halloween displays as being “awesome” and “a lot of fun for the kids”.
