Comment: That is the time we spend with family. People are forgetting that, that is the day we enjoy each other and not worry about another holiday.

Comment: No way! I think that if customers stand up and refuse to shop at insane times then maybe the stores will reconsider their policies. Retail employees should be able to enjoy Thanksgiving with their families too.

Comment: nope! cant afford Christmas again this year!

Comment: Some of us are still unemployed and are having tough times paying the bills and putting food on the table and still find a little extra for the kid to have at least one present. So, no, I won't be going shopping on black friday or any other friday.

Comment: Watching grnbaby so daughter can go.....

Comment: I've gone out before and it's just a big hoax. I will no longer wait in line just to find out that this store only got "5" of the "50" of an item they were supposed to get.

Comment: I realize there are great deals on black Friday but I have seen the crazy things people are capable of because they want a certain item. And even when you do go out for the sale a store is having you are not guaranteed that they will have any left in stock because everyone wants the items on sale that day.

Comment: Because we should show these companies, that we have spending power. We should be able to shop at our convenience and still get the best deal possible. We can turn Black Friday into. Saturday Consumer Day! no fighting over nothing, no getting up in the middle night fighting lines and plenty merchandise for everyone at a reasonable price.
