While spending time with my family on Thanksgiving near the Kalamazoo-Portage area, we had a chance to check out the line at Toys R Us right before they opened. (We even saw a lady slip on the ice in the parking lot and fall down in front of ALL those people in line!)

The line may look a little long but according to the experts, sales were down for Thanksgiving weekend. According to the New York Times, sales dropped almost 11% this year.
