Have you guys hear this? I just found out that Target is opening it’s doors on Thanksgiving night – 9pm will be the new opening time. Last year Target opened up their Black Friday sale at midnight on Thanksgiving night – but in order to compete with other big retailers, it looks like they’ve decided that opening earlier will give them an advantage.

People are calling it the “Black Friday Creep”, as retailers slowly creep back earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving Day itself.
It’s a little scary to me that the retail aspect of such a beloved family holiday is now taking over that holiday itself. I hope for the sake of the employees who work at these stores, that next year sees a shift back to the other direction.

What do you think about the earlier openings? Will you be shopping on Black Friday?
