The actual Black Friday is creeping into Thanksgiving Day. This is a fact. First it was just online Black Friday sales that launched on Thanksgiving Day. Last year the opening hours for stores moved up to as early as 8pm on Thanksgiving Day. At the forefront of this trend have been Walmart, ToysRUs and Target. This year Sears is apparently part of the stores that open at 8pm. The Consumerist reports that Sears has informed store workers that their store will open at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving Day is one of the biggest holidays for Americans. Black Friday is taking that Holiday away from sales personal at Black Friday stores with the opening times creeping into this family holiday. This issue is every year a controversial topic. Even for consumers it is questionable to go shopping on Thanksgiving Day evening. My suggestion is to shop online Thanksgiving Day morning when the major online Black Friday sales launch and enjoy Thanksgiving Day.
This year Black Friday is rather late falling on November 29th. In 2012, Black Friday was on November 23rd. Retailers will have four full weeks to please you with special Black Friday 2013 sales until the culmination of the actual Black Friday and the encore on Cyber Monday 2013 (December 2nd).
According to Black Friday Countdown there are 52 days until Black Friday 2013. We will again provide full analysis and guidance of Black Friday Ads and Deals in our Black Friday Hub.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
