Black Friday/Thanksgiving Day Store Opening Times & Hours

My, how time flies! Did you realize we are less than 5 weeks away from Black Friday? This year’s biggest and busiest shopping day happens on Friday, November 28. Stores open earlier and earlier each year.

For 2013, several “big box” retailers and some shopping malls jumped the gun by opening during the evening hours on Thanksgiving. This attracted many shoppers, as expected. However, this action also received some backlash by those who feel stores should remain closed on Thanksgiving Day so people can spend the day with friends and family. Here’s the list of stores which will open on Thursday, November 27, 2014.

Carson’s will open at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions.

Best Buy will open at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions.

Kmart will open at 8:00AM on Thanksgiving morning. Stores will remain open continuously throughout the night and into Black Friday.

Macy’s will open at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions.

Toys R Us will open at 5:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions.

ULTA Beauty Supply will open at 8:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions.

Walmart will open at 6:00PM on Thanksgiving evening. Stores will close later Thanksgiving evening, then reopen on Black Friday with additional sales and special promotions. For Walmart stores that are open 24 hours, the doorbuster deals will be available at 6:00PM.
