Walmart Pushes Back Black Friday Opening in Rhode Island

The retail giant has already released its Black Friday sale circular online.

Shoppers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts will have to wait until after Thanksgiving to take advantage of Black Friday sales at retail giant Walmart.

While Walmart locations across the rest of the country will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Massachusetts and Rhode Island’s Blue Laws prohibit the store to open that early in those two states. Instead, Walmart will open at 1 a.m., which is also the time many other retailers, including Target, plan to open for business on Black Friday. 

Shoppers don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to find out about the Black Friday sales at Walmart. The company already has released its circular for the sale.

I am certainly glad to know my big sister can relax and enjoy her turkey stuffing without worrying about missing part of a sale. She now can run down there at Oh Dark One O'clock the next morning. Perhaps she will see her parrish priest there! Blue Laws, where is separation of church and State? So many rules promogated by religion. Can you tell I don't eat stuffing.
