The New Battle Part I
There are two topics that I would like to discuss because the other candidates will not take the time to address. “Black Friday” and “Pop-Up Ads.” These need to be addressed because they bother me and they probably bother you as well. I will cover “Black Friday” today.
Black Friday (The day after Thanksgiving in the United States or the day after Columbus Day in Canada) is traditionally the day that retail stores make a profit for the year as more people shop on that day than on any other day of the year.
It used to be that stores would start decorating for Christmas on Thanksgiving week. Most stores are fully decorated for Christmas by Halloween and some stores start decorating as soon as the Back-to-School sales period ends.
Once upon a time, Black Friday sales started on Friday. It started at Noon many years ago, Than it got moved to 8:00AM, than 6AM, than 5AM, and finally, Midnight. The retail stores realized that they were running out of Friday to start. Black Friday started at 8:00PM a few years ago and 6:00PM last year.
It was bad enough having to stay up to get in line for a Black Friday sale in the cold Northeastern nights. Moving it to Thanksgiving Thursday cuts into very valuable time with the family watching football.
Here is my plan to stop Black Friday Sales during
football Thanksgiving: I will boycott and store that has a Black Friday sale before 6:00AM on Friday. This boycott will not just be for Black Friday. It will not be just for the holiday season. It will be for as long as they insist on ruining the Thanksgivings of their employees and of the loved ones of people who shop on Thursday.
