My sources say that Bentonville may follow suit next year.  I have been told by my sources that Brian and Doug talk often.

Not surprising. Black Friday itself has much less meaning these days with everything starting much sooner and so the day before BF becomes even less important.

What is Bentonville?

I hope they keep this all week early access to sales!

This is nice and a needed change. Now they need to focus on the old early morning BF events. Then I will be happy happy happy.

That would be awesome; having early morning deep discounts on the day after Thanksgiving.

They should call it......
"Black Friday"

The 3+ weeks of sales annoys me. Would much rather go back to the way it was.

I miss going late Thursday night shopping for Black Friday deals with my husband BUT I am glad that these retailers are letting employees off to spend time with their family. I just hope that next year if they decide to spread out sales over a couple weeks that they release their major ads beforehand so people know whether to wait or not on an item.

I think the only reason they're doing it is because things start so early online now there's really no reason for them to open on Thanksgiving. They don't want to pay employees overtime pay to work Thanksgiving if they don't have to that. For years they had no problem with forcing their employees to work Thanksgiving but now that it doesn't really benefit them as much they aren't going to do it. Target was one of the worst ones with backing up their times from early BF morning until we ended up having to shop on Thanksgiving.  

 

With online sales what they are now I don't think we will see things ever return to the way they used to be on BF.
