Some shoppers boycotting “Black Thursday” shopping

More stores than ever are announcing that they will be open for business on Thanksgiving Day this year.

The move has turned off some shoppers who think being open for business on the traditional family holiday is in bad taste and takes workers from their families.

Walmart, Target, Kmart, Macys, Gap and Old Navy are just a few of the stores that will be open to snag those early holiday season dollars.

On the flip side, Costco, Apple, Radio Shack, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls, among others, have stated they will be closed on turkey day so their associates have the day to celebrate with their families.

What do you think?  Should shoppers be mad that stores are open on the holiday itself?  Or does this give some employees the chance to make some extra salary?  Should anyone care?

Leave your comments below.  I’m curious how folks really feel about this.
