Retailers Quick to Cash in on Black Friday


Black Friday, the day after the US holiday Thanksgiving, is the traditional “opening” of the holiday shopping season, conjuring up images of deal-hungry consumers waiting in lines for stores to open early in the morning. In 2011, a few stores opened on midnight on Friday, with results beneficial enough that this year, stores are expected to open even earlier. Walmart is opening on 8pm on Thanksgiving Day.
