How Early is Too Early For Black Friday Shopping?

Target leads the charge opening at 9 p.m Thanksgiving Eve instead of the customary midnight hour.


Thanksgiving Eve may be the new Black Friday with retailers inching back store opening times bit by bit each year. This year Target said they will open doors at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving allowing mad shoppers to get an even earlier jump on shopping. But how early is too early?

Has American consumerism tainted a uniquely American holiday? Will earlier retail start times change dinner plans for your family?  Share your thoughts in our comment section.

Our holiday traditions are being taken over by greed! Do people really need to be Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving night?

I think it's disgusting. I feel bad for all the family's of the workers that have to interrupt one of the big FAMILY holidays to go into work. It's not even thanksgiving and the Christmas decorations are out. Next thing we know black Friday will be the day after 4th of July.
