Silver Spring Department Stores Opening Thanksgiving Night for Black Friday

See when big-box retailers plan to open doors after Thanksgiving.

We may need to come up with a new name for the evening after Thanksgiving dinner. That's when the Silver Spring Target and White Oak Sears plan to open doors for Black Friday. 

“We heard from our guests that they look forward to kicking off their holiday shopping with deal-hunting on Thanksgiving night,” Kathee Tesija, executive vice president for merchandising at Target, told Today.com

Target, located at 12000 Cherry Hill Road, will open at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22 and remain open until 11 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23. On Saturday, shop 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Depressing. There are people out there who have nothing better to do on Thanksgiving?

Sad for all those employees who are now going to miss spending thanksgiving with their families.

I feel sorry for the employees as well!! I am sure they would prefer to be home and enjoying family and friends.

Talk to the employees before you speculate on their feelings of getting overtime and/or time-and-a-half for working that time frame. I do. I wouldn't want to work there that night but I know some who would. Also, in case you haven't been in a Target, a large majority of the staff is not from this country and does have the watm and fuzzy memories and feelings we do about Thanksgiving.
