For the stores that participate, Black Friday is among the most successful days of the year. Around America, shopaholics rush from their Thanksgiving tables to pile outside the doors of Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and other establishments.

However, many people disagree with how early Black Friday starts each year. Stores like Walmart open their Black Friday sales at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Sophomore Maya Faubion added that she thinks “it’s an experience that not everyone can handle.”
