Can't wait for Black Friday? This season, Kohl’s Department Stores will open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
Stores will be open for 28 hours straight – from 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 28 through midnight. Of course, you can always show online, too.
Boston Store, too, will be open on Thanksgiving eve as Bon-Ton also has announced they will open their doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving for its big After Thanksgiving Sale. In addition, its online Door Busters will be available at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, November 27th. There will also be many special offers including over 500 in-store and online Door Busters and special Black Friday offers.
Personally, I have no problems with the whole "Christmas and the holidays get earlier and earlier every year" thing. I love this time of the year, and – in general – it's a time of giving, happiness and good cheer.
I won't, though, go to Kohl's or any other brick and mortar retailer on Thanksgiving evening. The night after turkey is one of my favorite to either hang with family and friends at home or meet out of town friends for a night cap or two.
Kohl's, of course, sees opportunity. "Shopping over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend has become a much-anticipated tradition enjoyed with friends and family," said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief customer officer.
"As many customers are eager to get a jumpstart on their shopping, we are opening our stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as a convenience to our customers who want to make Kohl’s their first stop."
I feel bad for the employees too....NOBODY needs to go shopping on Thanksgiving day...NOBODY! Here's an idea...stay home with your family, play a board game, watch a football game together, take a nice long walk after dinner....spend time with family and friends...not at a mall.
I'm so glad I don't work in retail any more. Customers are horrible people this weekend of shopping. Having to work Black Friday from sun-up to sun-down was bad enough. Now having to get to work as soon as you finish your last bite of Thanksgiving turkey would be too much for me. I feel so sorry for everyone that has to work this shift. Double time pay does not make up for missing time off with your family.

The Zac Brown Band may be the closest to a true definition of a current day Summerfest mainstay as you can get. Their cross genre approach has wide appeal and while firmly anchored in their traditions and heritage the band is constantly evolving, taking risks and adding sounds, personality and styles.
