Governor Rues Rush on Holiday Shopping

KSAL StaffNovember 27, 2013
Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is expected to sign the tax plan pushed through the Kansas Legislature by its GOP leaders.

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback says he understands why some retailers are holding Black Friday shopping hours on Thursday, but he doesn’t like it.

The governor says that he’d prefer that everyone observe Thanksgiving as a holiday. When stores open for shopping on Thursday, Brownback says, it takes workers away from their families.

The shopping season is especially short this year because Thanksgiving is occurring on Nov. 28 – one of the latest dates it can be observed.

Meanwhile, Brownback issued a proclamation designating Nov. 30 as “Small Business Saturday” in Kansas. The national “Small Business Saturday” campaign urges consumers to shop at businesses in their communities during what’s usually the busiest shopping weekend of the year.
