Much to many retail employees chagrin, the US Retail market is opening its doors on Thanksgiving Thursday, November 22nd.

The trend of opening Thanksgiving Thursday has become more popular this year, leading to speculations of a future shopping holiday termed Black Thursday. With the larger retail brands competing to see who can attract the most pre-Black Friday buyers, it will be interesting to see if this extra operating time will become monetarily beneficial.
