CNN reports for the second year in a row, Target will open at 6:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Other retailers, like Staples have elected to remain closed.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
- Staples is closed? Really? Is there anyone who would have left their Thanksgiving dinner early to buy office supplies? We’re sure you’re doing this out of the goodness of your heart, Staples, and not because nobody will demand a door-crasher deal on a fax machine the day before Black Friday.
- Hey, America, why don’t you just demand the crazy sales on one of the days before Thanksgiving? These “deals” are not related to the rotation of the Earth. Here’s a secret: these big corporations could actually be even crazier and push the deals so far ahead they could happen right now. (Oh right, that’s called “Amazon.”)
- “Where will I be able to get a paper shredder to shred all of my ‘Happy Thanksgiving’ home decorations, and replace them with ‘Merry Christmas’ banners, immediately after my family leaves dinner for work and shopping at 5 pm?” (Weren’t you paying attention? The answer is not Staples.)
