Stores are now opening their doors almost immediately after millions of Americans finish off eating their pies on Thanksgiving Day where only the chosen are able to run through complete pandemonium after a self-induced postprandial coma. Retail store owners have shown that a store that opens one hour earlier than another store will bring in 37% more customers, equating to a 5% revenue increase for the season. Hospital administrators have caught on to the new frenzy and many are now offering amazing discounts.
