Black Friday store hours

Black Friday is finally here! And while we're staunch advocates for shopping online, there are some deals that will be in-store only. And if you're hunting for one such doorbuster, it's essential to know when stores will open.

It's especially important to know if your store actually opened on Thanksgiving Day instead. The big box stores like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy opened their doors on Turkey Day, but many smaller retailers are instead saving their sales for today.

But don't fret, because we've compiled this comprehensive list of opening times for each of the major retailers. A few stores have yet to announce their hours, so we've included what they offered last year as a "rumored" schedule for this year.

Please be aware that in some cases, times may vary by retail location. Note that when a shop opened on Thanksgiving and remained open straight through until closing on Black Friday, no closing time is noted for Thanksgiving. Additionally, some stores that remain open overnight into Black Friday are vague about when they will close that day, so we were only able to note that they will be open on Black Friday.
