Experts say stores will open even earlier on Thanksgiving this year
Black Friday may completely takeover Thanksgiving this year, according to some retail industry experts.
Over the past few years, the after-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy has started earlier and earlier with some stores opening as early as 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving last year.
Experts say some stores could stay open all day on Thanksgiving this year.
“It’s inevitable to see them open all day or even earlier than last year,” Joel Bines, managing director and co-leader of consulting firm AlixPartners’ retail practice, told thePost-Crescent.
Because many retailers are struggling to find ways to boost their bottom line, Thanksgiving could be seen as an opportunity to close the financial gap.
Stores likely will not announce their Thanksgiving plans until mid-to-late October.
