Black Friday is Starting Earlier This Year . . . Wal-Mart, Toys “R” Us, The Gap, and More Are Opening Well Before 5:00 A.M.:
–Wal-Mart has announced it will be starting its Black Friday sale at MIDNIGHT on Thanksgiving night. And they’re not alone. Old Navy and The Gap are starting at midnight too.
–Toys “R” Us is beating them by two hours . . . they’ll open at 10:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving and start offering their deals.
–Sears and Kmart are trying to get the jump on everyone . . . they’ll be opening and offering their best sale offers at 6:00 A.M. on Thanksgiving morning.
–For now, Target is still set to open at 4:00 A.M. on Black Friday, Best Buy is set to open at 5:00 A.M., and Costco isn’t planning to join in until 9:00 A.M.
–But there’s a major price war going this holiday season, as these stores are desperately competing to grab your gift budget . . . however small it is in this economy.
–So other stores could still respond and push up their Black Friday opening times, too. (Dayton Daily News)
