It’s almost that time of year again when millions of Americans will sit down at a dinner table to indulge in delicious food, and be thankful for the things they have in life. Every family has different traditions for Thanksgiving, but most mainly deals with tons of food, football, and games.
Another tradition that may be more based on the individual is the annual Black Friday sales that give people the chance to grab a few discounted items for a limited time.

Having the 8 p.m. opening has it’s positives and negatives of course, it’s good that its early so people can actually get home and to bed at a reasonable time, rather than having to go to the store at midnight or later.
