The Shops at Mission Viejo will be open earlier than ever this year to accommodate Black Friday holiday shopping.

Shoppers can enter the mall at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving day, and it will remain continuously open until 10 p.m. Friday. That's 26 straight hours of shopping.

This is the earliest the mall has opened for Black Friday. Last year the mall opened on Black Friday at midnight. In 2009 it opened at 5 a.m. the Friday after Thanksgiving.

What do you think about stores opening earlier for Black Friday shoppers? Tell us in the comments below.

This is certainly nothing to brag about. Very sad.

Thanksgiving seems to have lost its meaning. Instead of being thankful for what we have, bargain hunters are standing in line at the mall for a good deal on more "stuff". The only store I was in on Thanksgiving was a quick trip to a local grocery store in Lake Arrowhead. The store was full of men, looking for poultry seasoning, and other odd items. I assisted several men who were on cell phones, "you need what, and where is it?" The women were home cooking. This was a pleasant day. Glad I was in Lake Arrowhead in stead of the Mall in Mission Viejo.
