Macy's has been the subject of a lot of headlines, and criticism, in recent days, for its controversial decision to open its stores on Thanksgiving night at 8 p.m. for the first time in its 150-year history.
While Walmart and Toys r Us have been opening on Thanksgiving evening the past 2 years, Macy's announcement makes "Black Thursday" mainstream.
It is likely to lead to a flood of mall stores also opening early, when most people are still finishing Thanksgiving dinner.
Possibly to deflect some of that criticism, Macy's has just posted a preview of its hottest Black Friday (uh, Thursday) deals on its Pinterest page, well before its colorful newspaper insert is ready for shipping.
Macy's Sneak Peek
Macy's is calling it a "sneak peek," but the website BFAds.net says based on its sales on recent Black Friday, shoppers can assume this is pretty much its Black Friday ad, just in a Pinterest format.
