Black Friday is underway. Traffic getting to the stores is OK but the parking lots are busy. In Boardman, the Shops at Boardman Park parking lot was nearly full. Many of the big chain stores opened at 8PM Thursday night.
At least two Ohio lawmakers including State Rep Bob Hagan would like to legislate holiday store hours. They introcduced a bill this week requiring retailers to pay three times the usual wage for those who work on Thanksgiving Day.
