Do You Approve of ‘Black Friday’ Starting on Thanksgiving?
The big gimmick this Thanksgiving season is retailers beginning their Black Friday sales on Thursday, a day previously reserved for turkey and football with the family. This has understandably annoyed retail employees, who now have to work on what was previously a holiday. It also isn’t necessarily winning over consumers.
According to a survey from Google of1,500 adults, 67 percent believe that stores who have pushed Black Friday to Thursday have “gone too far.” Baby Boomers are particularly irked with this trend, with 79 percent of 55-to-64-year-olds giving it the thumbs down.
