How many go shopping on Turkey day?? Last year I got up early and went out Thanksgiving and found some great deals at Big Lots. I will be looking out for those deals again this year.:yup:

Before we moved, we had a Big Lots and a Kmart within 3 minutes of our house. I went on Turkey day, but never found anything cause I didn't go early. Now it's not close, so probably not.

I only went once, and it was last year. I went to K-Mart and I haven't been there in 3-4 years. It was rather disappointing.

I only go if there is a GOOD deal that I really want to buy something in particular for someone on my list. Last year I bought my brother in law an IPOD shuffle at Meijer for $50 after rebate on Thanksgiving day. It was worth it and I was able to get a local paper early and read it while standing in line.

I've gone to KMart for the last two years to get the BOGO games. Since I buy for a Childhood Cancer Foundation and we give them to children's hospitals for kids in the hospital over holidays, it helps us out a lot! Think last year I was early enough for the DVD special too. I plan on going again this year, but it will depend on the deals.

I had the same experience.

When we had a KMart, I went there every year on Thanksgiving Day. Now the only place we have that has sales on Thursday is Big Lots. If they have something good that I really want, I will put the turkey on and go, if not, I just stay here, cook, and prepare for BF!LOL

Does Wal Mart do Thanksgiving day sales? I believe I remember seeing people at Wal Mart last year on that day--however I'm not aware of good sales. It's 10 minutes away from me, so if they did, I'd probably go for a bit in the am.

I usually see what is on sale at Kmart and if it is something that I need then I will go out early. If not, I wait until I get turkey in oven and then go out.

I don't go shopping on Thanksgiving. We have dinner at noon and live out in the boondocks so we have to drive an hour to shop as it is. No time...

I usually like to head to K-mart on Turkey day, but this year I may go to Wally World 1st. It gets me in the spirit for BF. :)

I don't think I went last year because I wanted to save up my energy because I had just had surgery the previous week and I wanted to go out on BF so I didnt want to push myself and now this year I doubt im going because I am going to be 8 months pregnant and I am going to still need to save up my energy for BF

Went to K-mart last year. Got caught in a bad snow storm on the way home, but I will go again this year if there is something I really want. I don't have to cook so my mornings are free.

I don't think any of our local K-Marts can open on T-day, at least they never have to my knowledge. I live in Mass and I am pretty sure it violates the "blue laws". I would go if it were open however. We have a rather unusual T-day here anyways, we go to a new movie and eat Chinese food...its different but its our tradition for the past 14 years:rolleyes:

My mom and I go to Kmart on Thanksgiving evening, usually. They sometimes have CD's and video games really cheap. We also hit Big Lots to get some wrapping paper for our BF purchases.

I have not been in a good while. Last time I went was at Kmart and it was for the games they had some really good sale don't remember what now. Anyway can remember someone stole my cart ... my lesson in never leave your cart. Walked from the back to the front of the store with about 10-15 games stacked up dropping them all the way, and saying choice words. :rant: I would go back though if they ever had a good deal again.
