- Claiming that the decorations are not “appropriate” and has scared her young children

An angry mother has denounced what she called “inappropriate” Halloween decorations at Woolworths stores.
The Western Australian woman lodged a complaint on Woolworth’s Facebook page, showing a gruesome display of decorations at her local store which she said has “scared” her children.
Two mowers could be seen hanging from the ceiling draped in cobwebs, a sight that infuriated the shopper, who accompanied their post with the hashtag #nothappywoolworths.

“The decorations are not appropriate, can’t you just dedicate a place or something? “It’s good that you have a quiet hour, but that doesn’t help at all,” posted Bec Tabinor.
“Does anyone else have a hard time with their kids when the decorations come out?” Mine said “let’s go and go to IGA instead, they don’t have scary decorations.”
Facebook users in the comments were divided as the post sparked a huge debate.
“I think a dedicated section would be better, I also think it’s a bit tasteless and inappropriate at the moment,” said one user in defense of the woman.
The annual tradition celebrated on October 31 usually results in grisly decorations, but the woman posted her disdain on the Woolworths Facebook page (pictured, a decorated Woolworths store)
“Yes, it’s not good to have scary decorations that give my kids nightmares,” added another.
But the vast majority of commentators thought the woman’s post was ridiculous, suggesting she’s getting into the holiday spirit of October 31.
“It’s not even scary hahahahaha my 8 year old would laugh,” one woman added.
‘It’s October. Many, many places have decorations, including people’s homes and properties. Maybe keep the kids at home for the whole month if that kind of posting scares them, ”another wrote.
Other users also mocked the woman, suggesting that the decorations, which are an annual tradition, are nothing new.
While some parents agreed with the woman, others went to the station to poke fun at her complaint (pictured, a range of Woolworths Halloween decorations)
“It’s almost like it’s an annual festival, which takes place around the same time every year,” one user joked.
“If only there had been prior warning of this event. Like giving it the same date every year or something like that. Hmm. I wonder if anyone has ever thought about it, ”added another.
A representative for Woolworths responded to the woman’s post,
“We’re sorry to hear your concerns about Halloween decorations in one of our stores,” asking the woman to address her complaint to management.

A Woolworths spokesperson explained that store workers help customers celebrate events throughout the year.
“Our store teams love to help customers celebrate a series of events throughout the year and we encourage them to get into the festive spirit by decorating their store ahead of celebrations like Halloween,” said the rep.
“We appreciate this customer’s feedback on their local store decorations and have passed them on to the store team.”
