Black Friday 2017 store opening hours
Extended holiday shopping hours from Thursday night and an even earlier start to annual online sales deals.
Black Friday is almost upon us and although there’s been a bunch of early November sales to whet consumer appetites, many want to know when their favorite stores will open on the biggest shopping day of the year.
We’ve perused all the biggest retailers websites to provide shoppers with a guide to in-store opening and closing hours for Thanksgiving (November 23) through to Black Friday (November 24), including online sales.
Not dissimilar to previous years, many retailers have structured their holiday operating hours differently to one another. For example, big-box retailer Walmart will open its doors at 6pm on Thanksgiving Day and will keep them open all the way through until 10pm on Black Friday, offering huge savings on big-ticket items.
Best Buy’s Black Friday sale will begin at 5pm on Thanksgiving night. This year, stores will close at 1am and re-open on Friday, November 24, at 8am. However, the electronic retailer’s online sales kick off 4am Thursday.
Home Depot stores will remain closed on Thanksgiving but will bust open doors at 6am on Black Friday.
Kohl’s Black Friday sales have already begun online, while in-store sales start at 5pm on Thursday evening.
Amazon also already launched its Black Friday Deal Week. From midnight (EST) Friday November 17 the online retailer began offering a myriad of savings on sales items storewide, plus free shipping for Prime members.
Target is another department store which will open from 6pm on Thanksgiving Day and stay open until 11pm Friday. Online sales start 1am Thursday.
Other stores keeping their doors closed on Thanksgiving Day this year include Costco, American Girl, Guitar Center, Bed Bath & Beyond, H & M, DressBarn, Petco, TJ Maxx, Nordstrom, Marshalls, Lowes and more.
