When Stores Open for Black Friday

Illustration for article titled 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]

Black Friday is the most idiotic retail event known to man. I'm sorry, but anyone that stands in line in the cold all night on one of the best family holidays of the year just to save 100 bucks on a cheap store brand television is seriously out of his or her mind.
