Retailers Roll Black Friday Forward to Thanksgiving Openings

As for Target, the store is opening up at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, with a Nook e-reader for $49, DVDs for $10 and a free $60 Target gift card when you buy any iPad. At 4 a.m. on Black Friday, Target’s doorbusters include $89.99 for a Canon digital camera bundle and LeapFrog software for $15.

Sears opens at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving with deals on appliances and electronics, including a 50-inch LCD television for $288. Sears reopens on Black Friday at 4 a.m. with deals on power tools, more appliances and clothing. In fact, on Sunday the retailer allowed members of its rewards program access to various doorbuster deals online before they hit the stores.

Kmart boasts a “triple doorbuster” special beginning on Thanksgiving from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. and again from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Black Friday and finally from 5 a.m. until 11 a.m., also on Black Friday.

Macy’s opens at midnight on Black Friday with specials on cosmetics, bedding, suitcases and glassware.

For the “late” risers on Black Friday, JC Penney opens at 6 a.m. with boots for $25, coats for $30 and scarves for $5.

If you hope to score some deals this weekend, keep in mind the limited quantities on doorbuster deals. If the store runs out of stock on an item, though, chances are you’ll see that item back on sale; there’s still one month of holiday shopping after Black Friday – and that means more opportunities for retailers to lure you in with sales.
