For the retail industry, Black Friday officially kicks off the holiday sales season. The day after Thanksgiving typically features heavily discounted prices on popular merchandise that drives many consumers to wait in line for hours before stores open in the hope of landing a bargain.

The tactic has been so successful that popular retailers Macy's Inc., Best Buy Co., Kohl's Corp. and Target Corp. have started opening their doors at midnight on Thanksgiving evening. (Wal-Mart Stores Inc. this year is going a step further -- opening its doors at 10 p.m.)
