Many retailers plan on opening on Thanksgiving day – but do you plan on shopping after your turkey (tofurkey) dinner?
Growing up, Thanksgiving to me, meant spending time with your family and friends while eating a super delicious dinner (or two, maybe three). Now it seems that it's all about shopping and getting the best deal.
With added pressure for retailers to perform and turn a profit, stores that were once closed on Thanksgiving are now opening their doors for customers to shop til they drop (including Macy's, JC Penney and Kohl's). What many people don't think of are the individuals that must cut their Thanksgiving day short so that they can go to work.
Before you start planning what deals you want to scoop up, try to remember what Thanksgiving truly means to you and what others are sacrificing.
