A backlash from some consumers against shopping on the Thanksgiving holiday — combined with retailers who want to focus their strategy on Black Friday sales — has some stores and malls closed for “Gray Thursday” while others are relentlessly open. Then the official holiday shopping season 2016 kicks off in the pre-dawn hours of Friday — except for shoppers who already scored Black Friday specials earlier in the week’s online.
