Black Friday is less than 72 hours away, but before you grab that turkey leg and run towards your local brick-and-mortar, we recommend checking out our master list of Black Friday store openings below. Like previous years, Black Friday is slowly encroaching on Thanksgiving Day, and that means if you want to take advantage of early sales, you'll be able to start as early as 8 pm on Thursday. (Remember to check with your local retailer though, as not all locations will follow the same schedule.) This nationwide trend can even be seen at the famed Mall of America in Bloomington, MN, where more than 180 stores will open at midnight on Black Friday; that's 35% of the mall's 520 stores.
If all this sounds overwhelming, be sure to check out our Black Friday hub for all of the latest ads and buying guides to better prepare yourself. Even better, scan through our Black Friday cheat sheets where we've already highlighted the best deals on HDTVs, toys, games, and electronics, and laptops.
