When Do Stores Open on Black Friday?

Target, Best Buy and Walmart are included in turkey day sales. Check out the deals here.

If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: Area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year—starting Thanksgiving Day.

Walmart, Toys "R" Us, Target and Best Buy are planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.

Beginning at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 22, Walmart will offer holiday doorbusters, while supplies last. These include deals on TVs, iPads, an electric scooter for $79 and a steam mop for $39.

Toys R' Us also offers doorbusters beginning at 8 p.m. Deals include $80 off an Android tablet and 50 percent off on Power Wheels.

Target's deals begin an hour later, at 9 p.m. According to an ad leaked online, the best deals will be for a Nook, TVs, a Nikon camera and an XBOX 360 Kinect bundle.

At Best Buy, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and a Samsung laptop bundle.

Walmart will offer its biggest deals from 10-11 p.m. Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items at low prices — an iPad, a TV and a Blu-Ray Player — and if the store runs out, you can still buy them but must register for them online by midnight and they'll be delivered to your local store.

According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have "doorbuster" sales Thursday night or at midnight Friday, including Kohl's and Macy's stores. 

For the early morning traditionalists, several stores open at 4 a.m. with special sales.

If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages. Check out Ridgedale Center on Facebook for specials and Santa photo information.

On Nov. 23 from 7-10 a.m., Ridgedale Center invites shoppers to join them for Black Friday in Center Court. The first 250 shoppers will get free Macy’s holiday cookies, hot cocoa and other giveaways.

Want to avoid the holiday shopping mega-crowds altogether? Look for Cyber Monday deals on Nov. 26 or visit your local Mom 'n Pop retailers on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24.
