More stores then ever are opening on Thanksgiving, with "early" Black Friday deals. Will you be shopping that day?

I like to spend Thanksgiving at home with my family, I don't want to be crushed by those mad shoppers.

I have a lot of friends and connections in retail that warned me that stores like to mark up prices just to "discount" them for Black Friday. The deals you're getting aren't much better than with regular coupons.

I prefer to stay home. : )

I like to do some online deals, but that's it. There's a seed store that gives me 50% off everything that day as long as I have bought something in the previous several months and since they sell obscure items in small quantities, I like it. I price things all year for certain things, so I know if it's really a good price or not and usually it's not that special in stores, but online, I still find good deals.

I remember a long time ago, there really were amazing deals at the retail stores, but there just aren't now and it's crazy and stressful, so forget that! And yeah, I agree with Sincerely Yours N, you need to be careful to know if it's really that good a "deal".

I just ordered a "special buy" freezer online from Home Depot and since they have the 30 price adjustment policy, even if they offered a better price on Black Friday, I could get the difference. So, I got it now while in stock and don't have to worry about going anywhere during crazy time! In the late 70s and 80s, I remember people sometimes used to go out leisurely shopping with relatives at the mall the day after, as a social thing to do, IF you did it, because most stores were closed besides the newer malls. I guess that was the very beginning of this nonsense! I am the person that hates crowds of rude people so much that I often do my grocery shopping at the 24 hr grocery at 3 AM!! No way in Hell am I dealing with the madness of Black Friday!

Holidays are meant to be spent with family and friends. Not being trampled in the store for some material item. You never know when it could be that person's last Thanksgiving.

I did "Thanksgiving night/Black Friday" (Left at midnight) shopping one time. And regret every minute of it.

I hate black Friday shopping. I do cyber Monday if I'm really looking for something.
