Do you think the ads will be distributed earlier in the newspapers now that many of the stores are opening on Thanksgiving?

doubt it, you might find the Kmart ad in the Wednesday paper or maybe even the Sunday paper but the rest i doubt will come out before the Thanksgiving paper, most newspaper companies have to pay the contractors(home delivery) extra money for the thanksgiving paper, if the paper would have the ads in them any other day then they would be in breach of contract with their carriers.

With the advent of Tablets, you can download the ads to your tablet and keep them handy. I wouldn't absolutely say that the printed ad is obsolete, but it has lost a bit of it's prominence since digital editions are now at your fingertip. I love the printed ads, so I will be doing both.

The last few years quite a few was in the Sunday paper the week before black Friday. I am hoping as well but I have already started making my list of what to get from which store. I stop taking the ads now and past pictures of what I want on my list.

I thought about keeping things on my iPad, but I don't think I want to take that into the store with me.  I will have my phone, but I often forget to look at it before leaving the store.  I love my notecards.

I doubt this year...but with the earlier and earlier trend it would only make sense if the holiday shopping starts earlier and earlier, the ads will eventually have to come earlier too

Last year Walmart put their Black Friday ad in the Sunday paper.  With all the major retailers putting their ads online already - it wouldn't surprise me if they all came in the Sunday paper.

I can see the split between Sunday and Thanksgiving Day continuing.  A few of the ads have text that indicates that they will be in the Thanksgiving paper.  I doubt that we will see any significant ads in the Monday-Wednesday papers.

Now why would they put the ads in the Sunday paper when they can make extra money on a weekday paper?

The decision about when to place the ads comes from the advertisers (who pay for them), not the newspapers.  The stores want their ads in the papers that get the widest circulation (Sunday and Thanksgiving Day due to special purchases).

 

I don't subscribe to a paper, but have bought the Thanksgiving Day paper at a newstand ever since I started Black Fridaying.  This year I will take a look at Sunday's and buy it if there are ads.

I know how it works, should've specified the question was rhetorical or that I was using a tiny bit of sarcasm. :) Still, it's good info to have out there for those who are curious. :)

just as an update, no BF ads in the Kansas City Star, but they did have quite a few 4 day pre-BF ads.  Also had a few holiday inserts like recipes and such.
