The WORST Black Friday trend is people killing each other to save $17 on vests from the Adam Levine collection. The second worst trend is every store opening on THANKSGIVING, just to get a jump on the day.
Fortunately, it looks like that trend is reversing. LOTS of stores have been announcing that they’ll be staying closed on Thanksgiving this year, and opening in the morning for Black Friday, like in the good old days. You know, 2013.
Some of the places that’ll be closed are Costco . . . Home Depot . . . Nordstrom . . . Gamestop . . . TJ Maxx . . . Crate and Barrel . . . Staples . . . and the entire Mall of America in Minnesota, which is the biggest mall in the country.
But it’s just for the 1,200 employees who work FOR the mall . . . the stores IN the mall can choose to be open. But hopefully they get the point.
