Maybe it is to early but i thought there was usually a thread about store opening times and how early we think the stores will open for black friday/thanksgiving. Has anyone heard anything about how early target, bestbuy and walmart will start their sales this year?

Nothing firm yet but I think more store will do like a few did last year. Open from 5 or 6 to midnight, close and reopen early Friday morning at 6 or 7. Difference sales for each event.

I think pretty much the same as they have been the past few years. About 5 or 6 pm. JC Penney will likely be 3pm as usual. I still remember when Black Friday was on FRIDAY! lol. Stores used to open at 7am Friday, lol.

I’m hoping that the overnight closures with reopening early on Friday catches on with more stores. Also it would be great if the stores do different sales events for both days so I have a better chance at actually getting some more doorbusters this year (I don’t go out shopping until Friday).

Wasn’t Walmart’s first sale at 3pm last year/the previous year? I’m hoping they do push it back to 5 or 6pm at least. I’m not holding out hope for a push back to Friday unfortunately.

Walmart started at 6:00 last year. Maybe you got there at 3:00?

Friday is now forbidden, lol.

Walmart did one lackluster sale last year. Let's hope that they knock one out of the park this year.

I know for years Kmart and Meijers opened at 6am on Thanksgiving morning then closed at some point to open again Friday morning.  Then everyone else started to start their sales Thursday night, then Thursday evening, it would not suprise me if it was Thursday aftertnoon or morning now.

Well no Meijers here, but our Kmart usually opens at 6am Thanksgiving morning and stay open all night into BF...

I am ready to start planning. Can't wait until we get some more definitive hours, etc.

Yep, just like last year. Thursday late afternoon openings. There was a few that bucked that trend last year and I am hopefully some others will play along too.

I don't think Walmart started until 6pm. I believe they remained open all day, but you could not get the doorbusters (or at least pay for them) until 6pm. To be honest, I was on line at Best Buy waiting for them to open, but I will check the archives CONFIRMED, Walmsrt both online and in stores started at 6PM!
