Some in valley take stand against encroachment on holiday

When he read news reports about the backlash against retailers opening at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving last year, Brian Zarka figured this year would be different. But he didn't figure it would go the other way, with stores opening even earlier. "I really thought that the press was going to motivate them to backtrack and go back to opening at midnight," he said. "(Instead) I saw the trend was moving in the direction of creeping more into Thanksgiving."
