Black Friday: To Shop or not to Shop?

It's becoming as synonymous with Thanksgiving as turkey, football, and the Macy’s Day Parade. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the crazy, chaotic, consumer extension of the holiday and it's getting crazier and more chaotic every year.
Black Friday fever has taken hold earlier than ever as dedicated shoppers camp out in front of major retailers, several of which are expected to open their doors on Thanksgiving Day.

Walmart announced this year's Black Friday will actually begin on Thursday November 22 – Thanksgiving Day – at 8PM to let customers get a jump on the holiday shopping. Are they taking it too far? Nordstrom thinks so!

While most retailers scramble to start the holiday shopping season ASAP, the department giant recently announced  that it will NOT adorn its stores with holiday decorations until after Thanksgiving.

Are you shopping on Black Friday? Where are you going? What are you looking for? Happy shopping!
