Let's Go Shopping

As we approach Thanksgiving more and more stores and malls are announcing that they will be opening their doors at 6 P.M. Thanksgiving day.  It's not bad enough that the day after-black Friday-has become a feeding frenzy but now they have to open earlier.

Many people being interviewed on the news show doing this story expressed outrage.  They blamed it on corporate greed and a variety of other ailments afflicting our culture.  They apparently missed the point that it's the shopper who is driving this trend.  If people had enough brains to simply stay out of stores then they'd eventually close.  After all, no one's going to pay employees to stand around an empty store.

Common sense.  It all comes down to common sense.
