They may as well call it Black Thursday. Joining a slew of other national retailers, Wal-Mart said it too will open its doors nationwide on Thanksgiving night.

Not to be one-upped by Target, which recently announced it would open at midnight on Black Friday, Wal-Mart said it will kick off its Black Friday deals at 10 p.m. on Thursday.

Part of the problem is the trend that fewer and fewer people get the Friday after Thanksgiving off anymore. My son used to get it off every year but last year a new company took over and canceled it as a holiday. It is happening more and more even for public employees in places like New Jersey. The last thing anybody wants to do is get up and shop and then go to work.

Here is the link for Black Friday Ads for most national stores:
**Black Friday Super Sales & Deals 2011**

Quite a few of them are advertising odd extended hours this year. They really DO need the sales, but I feel sorry for their employees.
Talking about a ruined holiday.

My holiday is ruined because the company I work for does not give us Friday off. Having Thursday off but having to go back to work on Friday when most middle-class workers have the day off SUCKS.

Target and Walmart are really in competitive mode this year.
I'm looking forward to how the one with less sales on Black Friday will
respond with their Cyber Monday sales. I'm going to hold and wait.....
