Regarding “Black Thursday” shopping, I can see how this is trending, and I like it!

2013: Black Thursday – Everyone in line by Thanksgiving sunrise gets a free turkey biscuit and cranberry juice.

2014: Black Wednesday – Line winds through specially stocked grocery aisle so shoppers may pick up Thanksgiving dinner ingredients on their way in.

2015: Black Fourth of July – Yuletide fireworks display in the parking lot and choice of free frozen turkey or pack of M-80s when you put an iPad on layaway.

2016: Black Friday.

2017: Beat the rush by getting a year’s head start!
