To Shop or not to Shop – How will you spend Black Friday?

When did Black Friday become Grey Thursday?Traditionally we started our Christmas shopping on the day after Thanksgiving – causing retailers balance sheets to turn into the black and spawning the origins of the name Black Friday.But then stores started opening early, then earlier, and then really early.Then people started sleeping outside stores to be first in line.Then things went from bad to worse when stores decided to open at midnight on Thanksgiving night.And now the opening... continue reading
