Starting Your Black Friday Shopping on Thanksgiving Thursday?

Some shoppers can’t wait to fight the crowds on Friday so they get full on turkey and head to the mall on Thursday night.

Will you go shopping on Thanksgiving Day?

We put that question to our Patch Facebook fans this week, as more and more stores and malls announce that they would be open for shoppers finished with their turkey (or not finished, whatever the case may be). Their response: overwhelmingly in favor of staying home with the family on Thanksgiving and leaving the shopping for later.

“I will boycott these stores long after Thanksgiving is over,” wrote one Lamorinda Patch fan.

A Concord Patch reader worte, “I personally think it should go back to the old ways. Nothing open on major holidays. Ppl survived for year and years. Go crazy on Friday at 5am. Leave Thanksgiving to families.”

A Danville reader wrote, “Let us enjoy Thanksgiving!!! Leave the shopping to Friday!”

Some, like the Great Mall in Milpitas, will welcome shoppers at 8 p.m. Others, like Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, will not open until after Black Friday officially begins. Read more about what stores and malls will be open and closed on Thanksgiving.
