I'm sure the associates will love having to come in. I don't really understand why WMT is doing this and not just keeping the traditional 4am opening. Ruining time with families on Thanksgiving. I guess the only day all WMT associates get off now is Christmas day. Wonder when that will change.

They will sell just as much crap if they open at 6 am Friday morning. I can't believe any stores are opening at these rediculous hours, open at regular hour and stores will still be crowded.It's all about greed. Really getting out that holiday message of kindness and love.I for one ,will not shop at all that weekend..join me in this..I have better things to do than be pushed around by crazy greedy people.

Its a sickening trend isnt it? Target is right up there, along with Toys R Us and who knows what other retailers are jumping on the band wagon.
I think one thing that municipalities should do is find a way to bill these major retailers who create this mess for the extra manpower it demands on public safety departments, i.e. police, fire & EMS that would normally have the day off because of low demand for services. If there is a "black Friday" line, it's a given there is going to be problems.
Another thing is each and every employee who works for these greedy bastard employers should simply not come to work that day. Sure they might threaten to fire and replace all the workers, but the corporate offices do not have enough manpower to fix that sort of problem in the time they would need to get over the astronomical profit loss it would create, and it would definitely get their attention.
But it just goes to show how spineless America has become. We kowtow to these pigs for the sake of not missing a career of minimum wage, minimum week employment.
