Who shops at midnight? This event might as well be advertised as Welcome, Crazy People. And Thanksgiving is a day when a lot of people spend the day drinking...well, this will be interesting.

Also: what happened to relaxing and celebrating the holidays? Giving thanks and all that? The employees of Stoneridge Mall might actually want to have a good night's sleep after celebrating Thanksgiving with their family and friends, instead of being forced to participate in this paean to unfettered greed and consumerism run amok.

We have plenty of "shopping days 'till Christmas", folks. Learn to take it easy. You'll live longer.

By the way, Jeb: Is this a "news story" or a paid advertisement? Because it reads like a paid advertisement. You may want to disclose if any cash traded hands for you to write this "story"...in the interests of preserving "journalistic integrity".

Yeah, I laughed out loud when I wrote those last two words in the P-Weekly.

there is nothing wrong with being "crazy people" as long as you spend your money and pay taxes...you see, taxes are necessary to help out others less fortunate!

pretty is as pretty does...i rest my case

can we all get along?

Be sure not to leave anything of value in your locked cars.

I really want a new iPad and big screen TV but can't afford it. A percentage of everything that's in these ads needs to be reserved for low income shoppers at reduced prices. This should be funded by taxing the rich.
