Plus Black Friday ended up being more than just Black Friday in recent years.  Retailers realized they could make more money by opening up their Black Friday sales and having them start on Thanksgiving Day.  Big Box stores started opening up their doors on Thanksgiving, thus taking away a day for their employees to spend time with their families.  This went on for quite a few years.  They kept opening earlier and earlier, to the point they didn't close on the holiday at all.  They just kept the "HUGE Bargain" items wrapped in plastic until the sale time hit.

Then COVID happened, and we all learned a new way to live and that consisted of shopping online and staying away from people.  The last few years reminded us of just how important family and holiday time are to us.  Not only that, the shortage of work staff happened and the big stores have trouble staffing their stores, and that's not on a holiday.  I mean seriously, we check ourselves out now, yes, Walmart, I'm looking at you.  What was once a nice option, is now the only option.

Don't get me wrong, most of your favorite stores will have their "BIG" Black Friday sales, but honestly, most of them are offering great deals already, and most of those deals can be found and bought online.  So the need for over-the-top sales to get people in the doors, just really isn't needed anymore, unless you really want a $10 TV.

If you are one of those, that love to get out and shop, then most of your favorite retailers will have all the deals on Friday, November 25th.  However, as with days past they will be closed on Thanksgiving.  Find all your Black Friday deals here.

I, on the other hand, will continue to shop online and avoid stores altogether.
