The Worst Day to Shop for Thanksgiving in Rochester Is…
If someone asked, "What day is the worst to get out and do your Thanksgiving shopping?" you'd say the day before, right? You'd be wrong. Same goes for the night before Thanksgiving. Full of last-minute shoppers getting in fights over the last Honey Moist Roast Turkey from Butter Farms and the Pop Up Timers, right? Nope.
It is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving you gotta watch out for. On his website, Michael Ruhlman, a close friend of the now dead Anthony Bourdain, says.
“Everyone thinks that on Wednesday they will contend with nightmare crowds, so they all try to beat the rush by shopping Tuesday,”
That's pretty solid reasoning there. You THINK you're ahead of the game, but you're a day behind. Curses! Make your plans accordingly, friend.
