Retailers have consistently moved Black Friday into Thursday over the last few years forcing their workforce and anyone looking to save on their holiday shopping list to cut into their family time on Thanksgiving. This has to stop before they rename it Black Thursday! ALL Retailers should commit to opening no earlier than 6am on the FRIDAY after Thanksgiving.

      First off, I like to spend time with my family on this holiday. I believe others should have this option too. If we start keeping shops open, then soon businesses will see no reason to have the day off and it will become a school and government holiday and not a national holiday. If you make the non-necessary people work, then it will become just another day. America has so few holidays. Why kill this day just for profit and sales. If you must go for profit, keep the sales to online.

      Tired of retailers making a mockery out of an American Holiday. Guess they forgot what it means to be an American.

      I'm a shopper and I want to spend time with my family too, and not be rushed to buy the first good deals! We don't get many days off where we can enjoy family and sit on the couch with full bellies, and hug each other and complain about how much we ate. Everyone deserves family traditions. The shoppers and the workers!
