In honor of our nation falling off a fiscal cliff as both AmeriKa and Kalifornia spend spend spend like there is no tomorrow,
Walmart has gotten into the spirit and started Black Friday deals on Turkeyday...so people can spend money (sorry... I mean credit) that they don't have much earlier than normal....
But no worries, I'm sure in Kalifornia, they will change the rules regarding credit cards....Afterall, it's the big bad ugly bank's fault...
Pretty soon, we'll see retailers starting Black Friday deals in September...
Reuters reports that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is kicking off its "Black Friday" sales earlier than ever: at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Last year, it opened at 10 p.m.
The move — part of a push by retailers to start the holiday shopping season earlier each year, to capture consumer dollars before a rival does — could put more pressure on retailers like Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and Best Buy Co. Inc. (NYSE: BBY) to push their own opening times earlier.
Lol "capture consumer dollars"... Love it... Just love it....
