Retailers shouldn’t open on Thanksgiving
If we had any sense of history and patriotism, America would be embarrassed about the commercial corruption of Thanksgiving. Last year, many big box retailers rendered Black Friday obsolete across much of the nation by opening their doors Thanksgiving night at 9 pm. This year, several, including Toys R US, Sears, Walmart and Kmart moved their openings up to 8 pm.
