As you probably know, Black Friday is almost upon us (yikes!). And with Black Friday comes some controversy this year as many stores are planning to open their doors on Thanksgiving day. Instead of waiting until the wee hours of Friday morning (as was the case in year’s past), many retailers like Toys R Us and Walmart are opening their doors on Thanksgiving evening. Now some would argue that having access to the awesome Black Friday sales earlier than normal is a couponer’s dream, while others may argue that all this retail craziness is taking away from family time and the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Check out more about this debate in the NY Times article found here entitled “Thanksgiving as Day to Shop Meets Rejection.”
On a personal note, I have never been a fan of Black Friday (I much prefer Cyber Monday where I can snag incredible deals from the comfort of my own home ~ in my PJ’s ). I would rather spend the entire Thanksgiving day with my family eating good food, playing games, and just enjoying one another.
I have absolutely no desire to wait in line for hours fighting with other shoppers only to find out the deal that I was waiting for is sold out or maybe is not even that great of a deal after all. However, this is just my take on Black Friday and I am sure that many of you may disagree. With that being said, I would love to have you share your thoughts and opinions on this topic…
