Shoppers, retailers turn Thanksgiving into Black Thursday
By Christen Coulon
Black Friday, the Friday following Thanksgiving, is considered the busiest shopping day of the year. The descriptor “Black” refers to the date retailers can expect to finally show profits for their year’s work. This year, a concerted effort by retailers to squeeze an extra day of shopping out of this busy weekend had shoppers lined up a day early making Thanksgiving Black Thursday.
At the Selmer Walmart, the parking lot was overflowing and shoppers filled the store looking for deals last Thursday night.
