Holiday Shoppers Take Advantage of Thanksgiving Store Hours

Thanksgiving meals were barely digested; the leftovers still warm when the holiday shopping season kicked off yesterday. While today is black Friday traditionally one of the busiest shopping days of the year, several major retailers have pushed back the start to holiday shopping season to Thanksgiving day.
