Thanksgiving is upon us. For those of us who work for retailers that means we’ve reached the peak of the climb on the roller coaster that is holiday sales anticipation. From here its a hold on tight, scream if you need to and try not to pee your pants.
Hopefully by the time the ride ends sales will be up to last year, we’ll come out without having relinquished our dignity to the competition or pissed away our profits.
To those who complain about stores opening earlier and earlier to the point of voiding the importance of the holiday, um, news flash: if you didn’t show up we wouldn’t open. No one is forcing you to go shopping.
Be my guest, stay at home with your family, sleep in. That’s what I plan on doing or actually I’ll be painting my bathroom.
