But in light of the upcoming holiday shopping season, many stores have unveiled a new weapon against credit card data hacking: Apple Pay.

Released last week, Apple Pay is a new mobile payment service that allows you to make purchases, both in person and online, with just a tap on an iPhone 6. Shoppers who have the new phones and a compatible credit or debit card can upload their card information and leave their wallets at home when shopping at participating retailers.

How Black Friday Became Black Thursday: A Timeline

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2014 at 10:53 AM

It’s one thing to know that Black Friday store hours have been creeping earlier and earlier year over year. It’s quite another to actually look at the data to see how far we’ve actually come.

So far for 2014, we’ve seen official confirmation from Macy’s and the Bon-Ton group of department stores that their Black Friday sales will begin in stores at 6pm on Thanksgiving. Additionally, many malls nationwide have already announced plans for 6pm as well. To the chagrin of many, it looks like 6pm Thursday is the hour du jour for Black Friday 2014.

Update: GameSop and Patagonia have both confirmed that their stores will be closed Thanksgiving Day.

American Girl, Burlington, Dillard’s and REI all confirmed yesterday to ThinkProgress that they will not open their doors on Thanksgiving Day. They join the likes of Costco, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and other companies that have decided they do not want to intrude on one of the biggest national holidays. “We choose to remain closed on Thanksgiving in longstanding tradition of honoring our customers’ and associates’ time with family,” a Dillard’s spokesperson explained Thursday.

Last week it was confirmed that Macy’s will open at 6pm Thanksgiving Day, and yesterday Bon-Ton also announced a 6pm opening time. Last year, Toys “R” Us and Best Buy opened at 5pm and 6pm respectively. Walmart, as they have been for the last 25 years, will be open all day on Thanksgiving.  Walmart launched Black Friday doorbusters at 6pm and 8pm in 2013. Nearly one million Walmart associates are expected to work the holiday.

In recent years there has been more and more public outcry as retailers move their opening times earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving Day. A “Boycott Black Thursday” page has surfaced on Facebook and has gained nearly 35,000 likes in support of retail employees and their families. The page’s total reach has increased by more than 3000% in the last week.
