What do you think about some stores being open on Thanksgiving instead of waiting till midnight?
What are your thoughts on Black Friday in general?
I thought the stores were open on THANKSGIVING? My sister normally works on THANKSGIVING at the grocery store.
One word; YUCK. Ok, now for more then one word. Thanksgiving is supposed to be about family, friends, and helping each other out. These stores are helping break our society, which was founded on family values and friendships, and service. These stores are convincing people they just 'have to come out' or they're gonna miss out. They are making people work who otherwise would be getting some usually much needed time with families. Ok, for those who do not have the ability to be with families or friends, the stores are taking away time they could be giving to serve others.
Instead of opening on Thanksgiving, why not check around and organize a meal or get-together for people with nowhere else to go. Personally, I think this would be great PR. I'd certainly be more willing to shop at a store that did this, then one who was open on Thanksgiving.
One of my best friends has to work at a big, chain retailer on T-Day and I don't think it's fair at all. If they're given a choice, then it's one thing. But they're scheduled and get in a lot of hot water if they don't show. There's no reason why any store needs to be open on any holiday.
Thankfully here in MA, Thanksgiving is a retail holiday and retail stores aren't allowed to be open. In this economy people are already working overtime, two jobs etc. to support their family. I think the employees deserve to have the holiday off and spend time with their families. I respect businesses that choose to close on Thanksgiving and other holidays for the sake of their employees, and will gladly give them more of my business!

Is Black Friday now "Black Thursday" in your area? Will you start your shopping on Thanksgiving?Lots of stores are now open on Thanksgiving to start their Black Friday savings even earlier. Do you agree with stores being open on Thanksgiving, and will you be shopping?

There are so many stores now open on Thanksgiving. What do you think of early bird shopping?Are you an early bird shopper to get a great holiday deal? Do you think Thanksgiving is losing it's meaning with all the retailers opening earlier and earlier for sales?
