Wonder if anything will come from the uproar over the Turkey Day “Dessert”
Openings by some of the retailers…basically turning Black Friday into Black Thursday.
Actually, I wish they were serving free dessert..that may get me in the door!!!
But its enough for me that Sam and I Black Friday will be doing our s how at the Great Mall from 1-5. I’ll just go a little earlier and get some shopping done…Might as well multi task..LOL!!!
It’s the Target opening at 9 that has gotten some employers mad..one so mad she has 200thousand signatures so far on an anti opening petition. A Target VP says the 9pm opening versus the 8pm opening of WalMart and others is a “perfect balance”.
Will dragging employees away from the dinner table pay off for the stores? Most say yes….that the average shopper plans to spend more this year….$749 ..about ten dollars more than last year. Doesn’t sound like a big increase but times that by tens of thousands of shoppers..and yes the answer is yes!!!
