Christmas has come early to Brown Thomas.

The department store launched its Christmas Shop today just 130 days before December 25.

The range of festive decorations is now available from Dublin, Cork and Limerick stores as well as online.

Some customers were pleased to see it open.

"With internet shopping, they have to get ahead I'm sure of the internet sites. So why not?" said one shopper today.

Another said: "I think I'd be killed if came home now with something from the selection, but sometimes it's tempting."

One added: "There's a lot off doom and gloom around at the moment. So I'm happy. I came in especially to see it."
