Don't Open on Thanksgiving

Black Friday use to be just that, on Friday. But over the last few years, stores have started opening earlier and earlier. Now, stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day in the pursuit of ever bigger holiday profits. This comes at the expense of retail...

You signed “Target: Don't Open on Thanksgiving” I had read this about REI not opening, telling the people enjoy the outdoors. They've received good support on it and I think more stores should do the same.

I stay as far away from the stores as I can on Black Friday.....I want no part of that insanity. We keep Christmas rather low key anyways. A nice meal and time to spend with each other is better than anything. Gifts are gotten for children only, low in number and the adults exchange one gift.

I never shop on the day after Thanksgiving. It is a time for the Thanksgiving holiday and family.
