I'm noticing all these "Black Friday" sales starting earlier and earlier each year.....some stores are even opening at 3AM!!
While there are some bargains to be had, it's a little ridiculous to have to get up at 3AM to get them. It's also not fair to the store employees, who have to get up so early on the day after a major holiday and deal with the madness that come along with these sales.
But, I guess opening the stores earlier results in more sales, technically, which must make the books look good.
