 does anyone else find it disgusting that Target and Walmart want to start the Black Friday Sales on Thanksgiving Day instead of Friday? Target has always been closed on Thanksgiving and Walmart would at least close by 2pm!!

No they just announced that they are doing it different this year. Their black thursday starts at 8. This is the first yr they both are doing it.

I don't know when WalMart closed on Thanksgiving. They have been open regular hours on Thanksgiving for years.

Lmao. If thats disgusting to you then I don't want to know what you think about actual serious issues like murder. If you don't like it don't go shopping. Simple as that.

Im sorry but a lot of stores were open on THURSDAY last year, target, shopko, wal mart is open all the time, many stores were opening about 9pm 10pm on THURSDAY including toys r us. Some opened at midnight like Kohls and other department stores. MOST stores open THURSDAY night or midnight THurs/Fri. Very few wait until Friday.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.

I feel horribly for the employees. Yes, they get (or should get) holiday pay, but they're missing out on a special day with their families.
