Yakima & Union Gap stores to open on Thanksgiving

Yakima & Union Gap stores to open on Thanksgiving
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Black Friday might need to be renamed Black Thursday, now that a lot of stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day.

Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl's, JCPenney and Best Buy in Yakima and Union Gap are all included. Macy's and the Gap Outlet will open at midnight on Thanksgiving.

Some local businesses are vowing to keep normal Black Friday hours.

One shopper we ran into welcomes the change. "I know shopping on Black Friday is vicious," said Pamela Mayhue. "When you're a single shopper like I am and they only have limited amounts, you can't get what you want because you're fighting the crowd."

Some national stores have offered new perks to employees who have to work on Thanksgiving day.
