The "Black Thursday" list gets longer!

  • Print

   I like to shop like the next girl.  Some days more than others, but still a good bargain is what we are ALL after.  

    This year shopping will be a little earlier than other years so that stores can get our dollar.  I was reading that 10% of all store sales are made on Black Friday and the weekend following,

    In turn that means  its imperative that stores fight for the earliest opening time to lure shoppers into their stores to buy their wares.   

    That changes everything!  Instead of a nice family day following the family feast on Thanksgiving this year its shopping in the evening!   Some stores open up as early as  8 p.m.  Forget getting up early to go shopping instead stay up late and shop til you literally drop! 

Here is a list of early open stores to save you some time.
