Don't like the early times. BF has always been the one time of the year when you get a lot more for your hard earned dollar. The average BF person shops for that reason alone. However with the earlier times, the stores are inviting folks who come to just "hang out" similar to what happens when you go to the mall during the later part of the day. Some of these folks are still under the influence coming straight from their holiday celebrations. I remember last year having to try and go around people who were just hanging around the mall at 2am because it was just a place to hang out. When the stores opened at the later times, the crowds consisted of a majority die hard BF shoppers who were there with purpose of doing some hard core shopping. I think these earlier times are inviting trouble. We are buying as much we can online so we don't have to be out as long with the extra people "hanging out" and causg trouble resulting from the earlier times.
I completely agree. It's not people who save and plan all year anymore, its anyone who just happened to see the newspaper and wants something to do. More drunk people, teenagers looking for trouble, people with their entire gaggle of kids etc. They just get in the way, slow things down, get angry/impatient because they don't understand the flow of things and made last year a crap experience. I'm sure stores will keep their 10pm or earlier opening times and I will shop regardless, but it has taken a lot of the fun and camaraderie out of it.
