In recent years consumers have watched with turkey-stuffed anticipation as retailers inched their Black Friday sales earlier and earlier until eventually Black Friday became Black Thursday, forcing employees to leave their families and pumpkin pies behind in order to facilitate crowds on the biggest shopping weekend of the year.
