215,799 is the number of signatures on Change.Org website supporting the various petitions aimed at saving Thanksgiving. More specifically these petitions are asking retail stores to stay closed on Thanksgiving. The petition with the most signatures was started by a Target employee in Dayton, Ohio, and has amassed over 99k signatures. Thanksgiving is upon which means Black Friday is tomorrow. Once again millions of pushy shoppers are preparing for the most chaotic shopping day of the year filled with elbowing and shoving just to take home those once a year deals. While retail workers are petitioning against working on thanksgiving day, stores are growing pretty nervous that shoppers will be cutting back on spending. That is why they are hoping to jump start sales by offering deals on Thanksgiving day. In addition analysts say that stores are preparing for the onslaught of mobile phone shopping purchases. Ed Butowsky, wealth manager, financial advisor, and managing partner of Chapwood Investment Management, joins The Blaze TV with Wilkow to discuss how real are these Black Friday deals and what it really means to retailers to open their doors earlier and earlier every year on Thanksgiving.
