The people to blame are the customers in my mind.
I agree with this. I wish it would start becoming an embarrassing and shameful to be seen at these sales but instead it's trendy and all the rage. Even a guy being stampeded to death didn't stop people so a few people having to work on Thanksgiving evening won't.

I may shop online on Thanksgiving Day. I suppose some IT guy is having to give up time with his family to make sure the company website doesn't crash. However, I will NOT shop at a brick and mortar store on Thanksgiving Day unless it's a drug store like Walgreens or CVS which never closes. Opening on Thanksgiving was a terrible precedent started amongst big box retailers by Kmart a number of years ago and I gave up shopping with them because of it.
