Retailers focus more on Thanksgiving Day
NEW YORK - The nation's retailers want shoppers to spend less time eating turkey and stuffing on Thanksgiving and more time shopping — whether it's online or on land.

For the second year in a row, CompUSA Inc. and BJ's Wholesale Club Inc. are opening their doors on Thanksgiving. The exception are stores in Massachusetts where local laws preclude holiday hours. CompUSA also added an extra incentive for consumers this year by providing pumpkin pie for those in line.

Iconic toy store FAO Schwarz — with locations in New York, Chicago and Las Vegas — is set to open its doors on the holiday as well.

In the past, holiday shopping on Thanksgiving Day was limited to discount stores like Kmart and Wal-Mart, as well as grocery retailers and 24-hour convenience stores like 7-Eleven Inc.

NEW YORK - The nation's shoppers - who have been hibernating in recent months because of worries about rising gas prices and falling home values - jammed malls and stores for pre-dawn discounts on everything from TVs to toys on the official start of Christmas shopping

lets see, gas, still going up
home values, still going down

is it really being a good steward with
your money(given to you by God) to get that pre dawn discount?
if so, I guess next year it would be the christian thing to do when the discounts are really big on
Thanks Giving day, I think they should move black friday to the day after halloween, kinda go together. Besides the Wal Mart down here had their christmas stuff up around mid Oct.
good post jim

"It has seemed to me fit and proper that they ['gracious gifts from God'] should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens." — October 3, 1863 - Thanksgiving Proclamation

From,"Is Thanksgiving a Secular Holiday?"
