Holiday Shopping 2011: Several Stores to Open at Midnight on Black Friday

This holiday shopping season may set a new record!  After eating your Thanksgiving turkey, rather than bonding with (or annoying – depending on the family) your friends and family, you will have the opportunity to get your crazy on and start your holiday shopping at midnight.

Major retailers including Macy’s, Target, Toys R US, and Kohl’s (all locations) announced they are opening their doors early to give consumers a jump start on Black Friday deals. They are offering enticing deals and goodies to lure people out of their beds to spend money.  Will this new ploy bring in the revenue that stores are hoping for – despite the question of a possible double dip economy?
