Some Black Friday sales start Thursday night

November 21, 2012

When Black Friday started in the 1960s, as a means to ring in the Christmas shopping season, retailers hoped to move their finances from the “red” to the “black”. But fifty years later, businesses are almost foregoing the original plans and beginning their sales after the Thanksgiving meal on Thursday night.
In Sweetwater, Wal-Mart will have three different times for shoppers to take advantage of their sales, as the first will kick off at 8 p.m. on Thursday, followed by a 10 p.m. sale. At 5 a.m. on Friday, they will once again open their doors to offer even more savings to customers.
