no. I think it's just a marketing ploy.

Disagree totally and won't be participating. In fact, I will shop these stores less!

I agree with all of you, no Thanksgiving day shopping for me for sure! I want to spend time with my family!

My Granddaughter will probably drag me out at some point on Friday to go with her but it won't be early in the morning!!!

I don't agree with shopping on Thanksgiving..I also spend 12 years working at an airport working most holidays..it's hard spending time away from your family. The holiday pay was a blessing though allowed us to afford pressents for Christmas...but now that we have kids want to spend it at home with them! As far as black Friday shopping I rather sleep in! I don't mind going shopping later in the day like around 10am...which its normal to be open not like 1am BUT on Thanksgiving or at some hour to fight with people that is sad!

Thankful to have you all apart of Spark :)

Agreed, I hate it. I went and did my grocery shopping at Target this past Saturday. I asked the cashier if she would be working for Thanksgiving. She said she had to come in Thanksgiving night from like 5 PM to 1 AM and then come back the Friday at 4PM!!!!

I felt so bad for the girl.

I do not shop on Thanksgiving or Black Friday.

It saddens me that stores are open for Thanksgiving. =( Wish employees would have an opportunity to spend the holiday with family.

I think it's ridiculous and even if I was Black Friday shopping, I wouldn't go there. They have no respect for their employees and their families. I am so tired of money hungry people.

Daily Question: How do you feel about stores like Wal-mart opening on Thanksgiving Day for pre-Black Friday sales? Will you participate?

I disagree with it completely. When I worked security, I made the choice to go in and work second shift so I could have the time with my family. I don't think I really have had a problem with a grocery store opening for a few hours in order to allow you to pick up items you may have forgotten, but they only open for a few hours and then close to allow their employees time with their family and/or friends. I won't be going shopping on Thanksgiving day or Black Friday...or so goes the plan.

Take Care and God bless,
