Default Confirmed: JCPenney to Start Black Friday at 8pm on Thanksgiving

In a bold move that somehow completely fails to surprise anyone, JCPenney announced today that most locations nationwide will kick off their Black Friday sales at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day.
“Obviously, we were one of the last to open (last year),” said Tony Bartlett, Penney’s executive vice president of stores. He also noted that this year, “We’re all in.”
(An anonymous tipster leaked the 8pm opening time to our Black Friday team earlier this week, though we did not report it at the time since we were unable to establish the tipster’s credibility.)
As we reported earlier, JCPenney is also bringing back the Black Friday Disney snow globes, a beloved tradition which was set aside last year in favor of a button promotion which disappointed many JCPenney Black Friday shoppers. Bartlett told the Associated Press that 2 million limited edition snow globes will be available beginning at 4am.
JCPenney is obviously playing catch up after a disastrous year during which the retailer abolish sales and reported devastating holiday sales. CEO Mike Ullman has been relentless in turning the ship around, bringing back sales and snow globes and keeping up with other top Black Friday retailers in the quest to win over the Black Friday faithful.
Macy’s was the first to confirm its Black Friday store hours for 2013, announcing a controversial 8pm Thanksgiving start time for most stores. We’re keeping track of all opening times on our 2013 Black Friday Store Hours page.

Why don't they just keep the stores open all day (you know it will eventually happen in the future) and just forget about family time and concentrate on money and profits. (sarcasm, of course) That's what it seems to be all about these days anyways. Unbelievable.

Okay, all done with my venting.

Luckily for me, I don't have to bother with any of that madness any more. Besides that, you won't find me shopping anywhere on Thanksgiving, unless it's a dire emergency! A long time ago (in the 80's?) I took the day off on a Black Friday, and will never do that again! Plus, it's not fair to the employees who want/need to be home.

I won't go either.....not for a free snow globe. The true fun of black Friday ended when stores went from opening at 6 am Friday to 5a then 4a then midnight. No thanks
