A friend of mine is a manager at a kmart and she confirmed her store is opening at 5AM on Black Friday. Has anyone else heard any opening times for black friday for Kmart?

I haven't heard anything but hopefully the ad leaks soon (it should!)! 5am would be great. I hope that's official and they're not joining the midnight bandwagon. lol Thanks!

Does anyone know if you can start a layaway on BF? Has anyone ever done this before? I could not find anywhere that says you can't. Thanks.

this is a pretty standard opening time for them, but i cant believe that they will miss the early opening bandwagon, Sears is opening at 4 i believe and it is the same compnay

Thank you. I have a limited amount for BF this year so if I am able to put some things on layaway BF (at those good prices) then that will leave me with a little more cash to spend that day at places that do not offer layaway.

I would suggest you call and see if you start a layaway now (after you see the ad of course) if they will price match if the price goes lower, ask about bf prices as well. That way you should get the items in stock and the good price. You can show up during the time and adjust the layaway.

Last year, there was a sign right at the customer service desk that stated they would not adjust prices for items already on layaway, to BF prices...just FYI...

Thank you. I may do that. The nearest Kmart is 45 minutes away, but since Walmart is opening at 10 (if this is true) and Kmart opens at 4 (I think) then it will not be a problem to get there in time. The only big thing that I am really looking for is a PS3. I am really hoping that Walmart or Kmart puts it on sale before then and I can put it on layaway before BF.

I'm waiting for this one as well. So far, I've seen one or two items I might want at Target, maybe a few more than that at Wal-Mart, and a big maybe on one from Best Buy, although I usually avoid that store on BF. But I always manage to make it to K-Mart for something on Thanksgiving Day, and then again on BF. The K-Marts near me are never super-crowded, and I almost always get every item on my list there. So... where are those two ads???

Hopefully the Thanksgiving and BF ads for Kmart are out soon (like tomorrow, lol) - can't wait for those. I don't see much I need from the other stores.

My baby sister works at Kmart and she said they told her they did not know yet. She said the same thing that the holiday hours posted on doors were what was mentioned above...But I have to wonder if they are feeling the midnight pressure?

:gdhug2:

I can always be used as a "bad example" :P

I work at Kmart, and what I posted is what our holiday hours schedule shows. Since scheduling is done three weeks in advance, I don't think they would decide to open at midnight at the last minute... but anything is possible. I was shocked that they actually did a midnight release for MW3.

Most likely... the way our store does it, though, is that it is mandatory to work EITHER Thanksgiving OR Christmas Eve. Some end up working both, though.

I'm not sure if the ads have reached the stores yet. They usually let us know, and keep it "locked up", but allow us to look at it.

Really, Brad? "..." That's all you have to say??? *sigh* Although, I notice that the gottadeal servers aren't functioning very well this morning... could that mean some things are about to show up? Maybe K-Mart? Maybe Toys R Us?... Something, anything? Please????
