Omg, my boyfriends job is open on thanksgiving from 7am-noon some stores are open for two days straight because since black Friday is the next they will keep the doors open haha. I guess people are going to get over time lol. But I think some people probably will go out and shop on thanksgiving to buy some supplies or forgot something lol. Like you see in movies haha Personally wont shop on thanksgiving at least not for clothes unless they are having a early black Friday sale. Other then that I will just get forgotten stuff like pies or need more of something but I wont go out and shop on thanks giving that's crazy

Many stores say that they have already priced their items at the Black Friday price, so why wait until then to shop. I do not want to go to the store on Thanksgiving Day, either. I really do not want to shop late Wednesday night. I am going to be a guest somewhere else, and I certainly hope that my brother has his shopping all taken care of before then.

Hi payout, I dislike going to shop on days just before any great festivals like thanksgiving, .... The outlets and hypermarkets must be crowded with customers. It's really bored to wait in the long queue for paying the stuffs dumping in the cart. It's not worth to consume valuable time to get stuffs in longer time, even though there is special offer for certain items. I prefer to have fun reading and typing post at mylot and surfing net, and watching online movie on and off Happy posting

I can understand what you mean yeah the lines are just crazy at my job they have method we put up bars and well a line director and someones always at the start point and yes the line goes around and around but , it moves fast because we will have several cashiers ringing people as fast as we can. Which will eventually move and if the line is too long and w know it will take some time to kill that line we will call additional which there is a list and usually the additional is about two extra people which is big help more then you think. And if that doesn't work we call all available cashiers. Which then kills the line then it seems slow again then it eventually grows again lol .

yes,thankgiving is near, and we would better to go shopping earlier. haha, when that day really comes, we should stop shop.As it may happen that some price is soaring. we can not buy something as the good selling are all sold out. so we need to make a shopping plan eralier.

Yes, your right but, to me people are more willing to spend time with there family then go out shopping unless you eat in the early afternoon then you can make it to the great sells that are going on which is pretty cool haha. Other then that I don't know lol . I try my best to keep things as plan but hey if my family is willing to go out in shop after eating I'm all for it haha we will be the cRazy ppl haha

I have noticed that many more stores are working late and some are even open the full 24 hours. I suppose with the down turn in the economy they are trying to capture as many customers as possible. I am like you though why wait to the last minute where people will be scampering all over the place in a hurry.

Well to me that's pretty smart because if they open for a long period time with that black Friday sale then people won't be going so scary not only that but they will be more relax and they can come a reasonable time to there needs which is nice haha. However it will be sad for the employees haha they are going to go through he'll but they are going to get paid good money haha

it seems that more and more stores are opening on stat holidays. here in canada, they even want to be able to open on Christmas day because they claim they are all not 'christians\ so they shouldnt have to follow the christian rules.

Oh that's crazy the only store I know of that was open on Christmas was walmart. That I think was because it was the year of ere grand opening or they wanted to give a try to see how it was. Well yeah they were pack pack.. Too many people how ever it was a smart idea but they are close from what I know since that time haha but i can wait. I don't think a lot of stores in the united states are open on Christmas since 85% of the country is christian lol.. But if I had a choices thanksgiving or Christmas I will go with thanksgiving to allow stores to be open haha christmas no

I prefer to shop online. I dont have to rush, I dont have to camp out in a Walmart parking lot lol, and I still end up getting good deals. I never have to shop during thanksgiving because I can pick virtually any time to buy what I need.
