Has Gray Thursday replaced Black Friday?
strike in protest, the backlash has begun against this rampant consumerism. Shown here is a banner ad from JC Penney that a friend of mine posted on Facebook this week. JCP is leading the charge against the new eat-then-shop holiday, saying it's going to "honor" tradition by closing stores on Thanksgiving and not open until Black Friday. JCP is even opening its stores two hours later this year - at 6am, vs. 4am last year - and I applaud them for taking this stance.
