6at4 Business Report: Occupy movement, Black Friday

November 24, 2011

Occupy protests
As reported by the Associated Press, protestors are celebrating at Zuccotti Park where all the action's been centered. A spokeswoman says they're celebrating with music performances and meals for 5,000 people, donated by restaurants and individual supporters. As for what they're going to do after the turkey, it'll be interesting. Protestors have been banned from lying down in the park, meaning there will be no turkey day naps.

Black Friday shopping
Black Friday shoppers better start thinking about winding down for the night. Retailers are opening even earlier this year as they try to snag economically-anxious customers. Some think these tactics may actually result in higher sales. But it could also mean lower profits for retailers over the holiday season.
