I don't ever remember getting up early on Black Friday to go shopping as a kid. It may have happened but I don't remember.

Then stores offered deals early in the morning and people got up to to get these sales. Some of the stores pulled a fast one and only had a few of some of the products and it brought out the worst in people.

Then, stores opened earlier with more deals to make it worth coming in so early. It became 5 am to get people into the store. More deals to get you to come in that early.

 

Who is to blame? people say they wouldn't do it if people didn't come. Which is true. So is it the retailers or us the people?

I feel bad knowing there is someone having to leave their family early so they can work overnight selling cheap electronics and toys. Forgive me if I just get a gift card.
