I'm completely against retailers being open on Thanksgiving...COMPLETELY against it. I won't be shopping on Thanksgiving and I don't care if they're giving out XBOX ONEs for a buck. I'm not doing it.
But even having the stores open after midnight Thanksgiving (the very beginning of Black Friday) is kinda crappy because those people who have to work the overnight shifts just end up having to go to sleep on Thanksgiving so they can be awake for the overnight.
I just have a really hard time believing they make THAT much money being open that one extra day or a few hours that day.
Looking forward to Christmas a little early this year.
