Retail Rant


Photo by Paul Keleher

I just gotta ask this. What could possibly be so all-fired important that you have to go shopping on New Year's Day? It's a holiday. The people who work retail deserve a holiday too. Who decided that stores should be open on the first day of the year? What about spending time with friends and family?

Apparently this trend of adding yet another consumer holiday to the calendar started more than 20 years ago, when Macy's of all places, opened on New Year's Day for the first time.

What is wrong with everybody?

OK. I feel better now.
