Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Seriously, what is the logic behind stores opening for Black Friday on Thursday evening? [View all]

Will people buy additional Christmas gifts that they would not have otherwise bought?

Do they think people will spend money on Thursday night that they might be disinclined to spend on Friday? Do they think they'll spend money on Thursday night *and* on Friday?

Will we get to see teevee crews doing live remotes as crazed shoppers line up waiting for doors to open? Will small children be trampled in the frenzy? Will there be hair pulling between Moms after some rare flavor of Barbie or Beanie Baby?

Seriously, what is the logic behind stores opening for Black Friday on Thursday evening?
