This isn't good enough. I won't be satisfied until semi-truck mobile versions of their stores show up at my house on command, whenever I want. Go ahead and snicker, but you know that's what's coming next.

First, they turned Memorial Day and Veteran's Day into selling opportunities and I didn't say anything. Then they backed "Black Friday" up into Thanksgiving and I said "Good for the retailers, and shame on their thankless employees for complaining" and ran out to get a few bargains. Then, in 2014, they extended the Christmas shopping hours to 6 a.m. Dec. 25 and I was outraged. Turns out I'd been fighting the "War on Christmas" against all the wrong people.

u29ac52, why pity the staff. Since they probably not hiring extra workers at this late date, it means lots of paid hours just before the holidays.

Retail sales are not down because people can't make it to the stores during open hours. Retail sales are down because income from wage-earning jobs is down. Keeping stores open around the clock isn't going to make the average American any wealthier.

You go, swmguy. More hours and bigger sales are not going to solve the problem of being a "consumer-driven economy" with no consumers to drive it.
