Happy Thanksgiving ... Now Get to Work
As I was on the couch watching football Sunday afternoon (I know, tough day), I couldn't help but notice the number of retailers advertising that their stores would be open this coming Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Yep, Thursday, not Black Friday. While Black Friday has long been viewed as the traditional kickoff to the holiday shopping season, getting the frenzy started on Thanksgiving is a rather new development. A development that I find sad.
