By now you have reviewed the Black Friday sales of all your favorite retailers and probably have a preliminary plan.  There are so many great stores, but I narrowed mine down to Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, and Amazon.  They are my priority, but that doesn’t mean I won’t visit other stores if time allows.

Each store has doorbusters and specials both online and in-store.  Once you have determined which stores you will shop, it is important to make the best use of your time. To assist you with that, here are Black Friday store hours for some of the top stores to help you create your shopping game plan.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday Store hours

Black Friday has now stretched out to be several days.  Many stores have pre-Black Friday sales, special sales for cardholders, and different deals online and via their apps.  Amazon has a Black Friday week which is becoming more common.  Kohl’s started sending pre-Black Friday specials days before.

For the purpose of this post, we will focus on Thanksgiving and Black Friday hours.  It is a good idea to sign up for emails, check online and your apps to see other deals outside of these two days.  You don’t want to miss anything.  There are a lot of stores having sales, so I picked some of the top stores to get you started.

Top Stores


Amazon does not have a physical store and their Black Friday deals are slightly different.  They have a countdown to Black Friday deals week of sales.  These deals sell out quickly, so check back regularly.  The best place to start is on the Black Friday Deals Week page.

I love Amazon devices and they are having great deals on their products.  Some highlights include:

Echo dot $29.99, Echo Show $179.99, Fire HD 10 $99.99, Kindle Paperwhite $89.99, Fire TV Stick $24.99

Online deals

If you don’t want to fight the crowds in-store, remember many stores have online-only deals.  The benefit of online is the sales start earlier on Thanksgiving day.  The doorbusters may be different online and in-store, but there are still good deals to be had both ways.

Another thing to note is many stores are having pre-Black Friday sales online.  Signing up for their emails and using their apps are ways to find out about special sales.

May all your Black Friday shopping plans go smoothly!
