Many retail employees are forgoing Turkey Day with their families to offer a jump start on the Black Friday shopping mania.

According to the USA Today, Wal-Mart, Old Navy, and Radio Shack on the West Coast will entertain shoppers who decide to splurge after a hearty meal.

So will Toys R Us, says an earlier Walletpop post and Boscov’s and certain Banana Republic/ Gap stores. These retailers will join Kmart, Walgreen’s and other drug and grocery stores who began the tradition years ago.

“It’s a big trend for retailers,” said Scott Testa, professor of business administration at Cabrini College in Philadelphia in a phone interview. “I think a certain percentage of the population will go and shop especially if they can beat the Black Friday crowd.”
