When Stores Open for Black Friday

It's not just Wal-Mart that's opening up its stores for Black Friday sales right about the time most people cut their turkey during Thanksgiving Dinner, a lot of stores are bumping up their opening times a lot earlier this year too. Here's a list of when stores will open for 'Black Friday' also known as Thanksgiving for most people.

The WSJ dug up the opening times for big box stores:

  • Wal-Mart - 8:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day
  • Sears - 8:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day
  • Toys R Us - 8:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day
  • Target - 9:00 PM on Thanksgiving Day
  • Best Buy - 12:00 AM on Black Friday
  • Macy's - 12:00 AM on Black Friday
  • Kohl's - 12:00 AM on Black Friday
  • Staples - 5:00 AM on Black Friday (this actually looks halfway sensible)
  • Basically, if you want a good deal and a good meal, buy a bucket of chicken at KFC and bring it with you while you shop. Or wait for Cyber Monday. [WSJ via Consumerist]
