New early 8pm Black Friday sales start time on Thanksgiving Day trigger controversy and petitions.
Black Friday Sales have been creeping into Thanksgiving Day over the last years. This year marks yet another shift to earlier Black Friday sales start times. Last year it was 10pm Thanksgiving Day and this year the major retailers kick off Black Friday sales already at 8pm.
CNN already calls Thanksgiving Black Thursday. Thanksgiving was already Black Thursday last year as online Black Friday sales started as early as midnight on Thanksgiving Day. There is some backlash from consumers and retail employees about the earlier Black Friday sales launch, but the outcry seems less loud compared to last year.
The question is where will it end? Will we end up to have a 48-hour Black Friday in a couple of years? The online Black Friday sale is already 48 hours or you could also say it goes on all November.
Black Friday 2012 is on November 23, 2012. Once again the whole month of November will be the filled with great Black Friday deals and sales. I4U News will again report about the best Black Friday deals and the hottest Black Friday ads as soon as they become available.
