Aussie Mum Slams Woolworths For Scaring Her Kids With Halloween Decorations


Aussie Mum Slams Woolworths For Scaring Her Kids With Halloween Decorations

An Australian mum has slammed Woolworths for scaring her kids with their Halloween decorations.

As we edge closer to October 31, everyone is gearing up for Trick or Treaters and fancy dress parties where you can show off your best Squid Game costume.

Woolies has jumped on the bandwagon and is selling a bunch of festive stuff for those who want to participate in the annual tradition.

However, it seems like their ghoulish display in one Western Australian store caused a bit of an upset.

One mum took her complaint to Facebook, where she said: "The decorations are not appropriate, can't you just dedicate a spot or something? It's great you have quiet hour but this is not helping at all.

"Any one else struggle with their kids when the decorations come out? Mine said 'lets leave and go to IGA instead, they don't have scary decorations'."

Her post went viral and it picked up loads of support from other parents who thought the decorations were a bit much.


One person said: "Yes I think all the Halloween decorations in all stores is very frightening and most parents shop with little ones."

Another added: "Horrific for me, an adult. I have grandchildren who would be freaked out by this. Re-think Woollies."

However, others hit back and told the mum and her kids to 'harden up'.

A Facebook user wrote: "I suggest you and your kids have a bowl of cement for breakfast."

A different individual said: "I am not in to Halloween I don't even know why we have it here in Australia again it the money thingBut saying this if I was the child's mum I would have explained to them that it is a decoration and yes some of the Halloween stuff is inappropriate."

Unfortunately for her, it seems like the Woolies Halloween train won't be stopping any time soon.

A spokesperson for supermarket giant replied to her comment, saying: "We're sorry to hear your concerns about the Halloween decorations in one of our stores.


"Our store teams enjoy helping customers celebrate a range of events throughout the year and we encourage them to get in the festive spirit by decorating their store in the lead up to celebrations like Halloween.

"We appreciate this customer's feedback on the decorations at their local store and have passed it onto the store team."
