EVERYWHERE - Just a reminder that Target has made it clear they'll open their stores across the country at midnight Nov. 25 to get a head start on Black Friday. This will be crazy, trust us - we saw what happened last year.
EVERYWHERE - Macy's, for the first time in the company's history will also be opening at Midnight on Black Friday for post-Thanksgiving-dinner savings. Expect bajillions of youngsters and a mad run on exclusive Justin Bieber fragrance gift sets and scratch and sniff posters.
