Black Friday shopping may actually BE on Black Friday as more stores choose to close for Thanksgiving.

A boycott to ban Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving began in 2014, when stores were staying open to get a jump start on the holiday shopping season rather than allowing employees to stay home with their families. It worked. Stores that use to open early, are now staying closed Thanksgiving Day.
