    I bought a washer and dryer at HHGregg on Thanksgiving several years ago. I think they opened around 10pm on Thursday for the Black Friday Sales. I got a decent deal but could have had a great one if I wanted to stand in line. Now the trend is to close the stores on Thursday and open early Friday.

    Good. Give these employees some time with their families on a popular holiday.

    Everybody's credit cards will still work on Friday.

    Last year JCP opened at 3pm to fist fights and police being called. Ugly scene that rivals wal mart.

    Walmart loves to let the thundering herd in early...It should be renamed Carnage-Mart

    Nordstrom. They make a big deal of it. "We want our employees to enjoy their holiday."

    Our local mall is closed, which will make the Restaurant I have to run on Thanksgiving even slower... That's at least something. Every nonessential facility should be closed.

    I love how these companies make you think they're doing a great thing for the public by opening on Thanksgiving. In reality, they're making the peons, who need the job to feed their families, work for fear of getting fired while the bigwigs sit at home relaxing and counting their millions.

    Whatever happened to the good old days of cutting out from the family party early and drinking in a bar?

    If everyone would stop going to these stores on Thanksgiving they would all be closed.

    I will be full, hung over, and somewhat rested for viewing the Black Friday rape and pillaging on YouTube.

    what I love about Black Friday is the craziness from people and the damn fights, that's what I look forward to on Thanksgiving

    but glad some stores are closing
