So in retail logic, open even earlier next year. They won't learn.

We did, too...we were so far over on Saturday, it was frightening. And every other day was great, too.

I did work Saturday. We beat sales by 50%. It was hell at the front end. The mid-day cart attendant called off, and they didn't have any more cashiers scheduled than a normal Saturday. Luckily I was able to stay in my guest service corner all day and didn't have to get carts since I was/am still sick.

We beat our sales goal for Black Friday and we also beat last year's sales. Plus we beat our nearest neighbor store!

I was watching the news this morning and the report on 'Cyber-Monday'.
Sales were up 15-20% which pretty much fits the report of the people out shopping.
They looked around, saw what they wanted, checked the prices and went home to buy it online.
