Will a good sale get you through the doors on Thanksgiving?

Although many stores choose 'family time' for their employees on Thanksgiving Day, some retailers forge ahead and OPEN their doors for the diehard shoppers.

Do you think the stores that OPEN on Thanksgiving are wicked? Don't be a hater just yet. BestBlackFriday.com points out that many stores allow employees to volunteer to work before assigning shifts to fill in the gaps.

In other situations, some people do not mind working or may actually prefer to work. We have had numerous retail employees reach out to us over the years stating their desire to work on Thanksgiving for various reasons. [BestBlackFriday.com]
