It seems to happen earlier and earlier every year. Walmart Best Buy and Target have been doing this for years, and now JCPenney is jumping on board.
Its 2pm opening means that most employees would need to wrap up Thanksgiving dinner by around 1 PM to get ready for work and commute. Given that the average Thanksgiving dinner lasts a couple of hours, a JCPenney employee would have to start the Thanksgiving “dinner” around 11 AM.
Will you be going there at 2pm just to get some good deals?
