After Thanksgiving sales start Monday – 4 days early?

Posted by Ed C on Monday, November 23, 2009

The Christmas decorations seem to come out earlier each year.   What use to be an after Thanksgiving tradition is now barely safe for Halloween.   Now, the after Thanksgiving sales start before Thanksgiving.

The Walmart ad for “black Friday” was leaked leaked last week and is available here.   For those of us that do not treat shopping, checkout lines, fighting for a good parking space or the crowds  as part of a competitive sport or anything close to enjoyable, let alone at 5:00 AM and would rather just sleep off the turkey, Amazon has a special web page that starts today.

(and who knew that there was a web site devoted just to black Friday ads.)
