Where Black Friday starts Thursday night

NEED TO KNOW
  • HLN's personal finance expert Jennifer Westhoven says some people are fighting back against 'Thanksgiving creep'
  • Several stores promoting 'doorbusters' on Thursday night

For many retail workers, there won't be any time for turkey this Thanksgiving. 

Thanks to what's being called "Thanksgiving creep," many stores are starting those Black Friday doorbuster sales on Thursday night.

Stores say customers love it. In fact, HLN's Jennifer Westhoven reports that Thanksgiving night at 10 p.m. was one of Wal-Mart's busiest times of the year!

But some employees and their families are trying to "take back Thanksgiving" and have even started online petitions to get retailers to keep their doors closed on Thanksgiving.

Where do you stand?

Morning Express with Robin Meade airs Monday through Friday at 6 a.m. ET on HLN.  Like the show on Facebook, follow Jennifer Westhoven on Twitter: @JenWesthoven.
