Wal-Mart will begin offering their Black Friday deals at 8 p.m on Thanksgiving Night. This will keep Wal-Mart employees from being able to spend more time with their families, as well as forcing shoppers to come out earlier to get the Wal-Mart deals.

Please move your Black Friday Start time back to Friday, so we can celebrate 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.

      PLEASE close on THANKSGIVING and bring Black Friday BACK!! I will be spending Thanksgiving with my family!! My husband and other family members loved getting up at 1AM on Friday and getting in line... it was tradition; but we will NOT give up our Thanksgiving and your employees (I am NOT one) should also be allowed to spend the entire day with family too!! This is ridiculous and you are sucking the fun out of the entire thing... let's face it; the deals are only part of it; for many this is just a FUN thing to do; look at adds after the pie and plot your Friday... BOO!!! to Target and all retailers ruining Black Friday!!

      it is no longer black friday it is like erasing thanks giving all together and i know there are many people who will still choose to shop on thanksgiving. but i really enjoyed going to the black friday event but having it at 6 adn 8 it just way to early and takes out to much family time. so this year i will not be attending the event until later when black friday should be it should be what it is BLACK FRIDAY
