Poll: Are you shopping in-store Black Friday deals on Thanksgiving?

Posted November 19, 2012


I need your help with my Wednesday noon news Black Friday segment! Will you be shopping the in-store early Black Friday sales starting at 8:00 pm on Thanksgiving Day? As you probably know, many stores have moved their Black Friday sales to Thanksgiving Day, starting as early as 8:00 pm.

Please leave a YES or NO answer as to whether you are shopping in the stores on the evening of Thanksgiving Day (not on-line, only in the actual stores).  If your answer is YES, feel free to let us know which store you are heading to first.

Thanks for your help!

    No. Thanksgiving should be a time to share our love with relatives, friends and/or those often forgotten (nursing homes, elderly and people in need of food, clothing and medical care).

    NO, soon there will be no holidays that retails havent taken. Think about those poor workers who never get to see their family as they never have a holiday OFF.
