Black Friday is 6 days away, and while many people would rather just buy online and skip the fights and long lines, many still want to be able to grab whatever they can directly from the store. Let the games begin!
In the last couple of years, online retailers like Amazon and eBay have been met with some resistance from the online versions of stores like Walmart and Target. And while the fight for online supremacy is still to be decided, special deals have been showing up on Thanksgiving Day, regardless of my opinion on the downside of opening on that especial day. A good example is a deal for a Toshiba 49-inch Class LED 2160p Chromecast Built-in 4K Ultra HD TV for $199.99 at Best Buy, that won’t be at the same price the next day.
And so, I’m going to skip my yearly rant and just list some of the stores that will apparently have special deals for that specific day, and that are not necessarily related to their Black Friday deals the next morning.
- Best Buy – Thanksgiving 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. Black Friday Doorbusters
- Dick’s Sporting Goods – Thanksgiving 6 p.m. to 2 p.m. Black Friday
- JCPenney – Thanksgiving 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Black Friday
- Kohl’s – Thanksgiving 6 p.m. (doorbusters end at 1 p.m. Friday)
- Kmart – Thanksgiving 7 pm. to 2 p.m. Black Friday
- Macy’s – Thanksgiving 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. Black Friday
- Michael’s – Thanksgiving 6 p.m. to Midnight and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Black Friday
- Old Navy – Thanksgiving 4 p.m to Midnight Black Friday
- Sears – Thanksgiving 6 p.m. to Midnight and 5 a.m. on Black Friday
- Target – Thanksgiving 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., 11 p.m., or Midnight on Black Friday (varies by location)
- Toys R Us – Thanksgiving 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Black Friday
- Walgreens – Thanksgiving 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. to Midnight on Black Friday
- Walmart – Thanksgiving 6 p.m
Still, if you want to avoid the lines and getting walked all over, just order online.
By the way, I thought the hoverboards were going to be banned, but I see a deal for one on Target’s ad, page 2.
