Here's who's open and closed on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

By Julie Ramhold/DealNews

Black Friday is next week! We're prepping to stay in and shop online on the big day, but we also have our eye on some in-store-only deals. If you're also on the hunt for those doorbusters, you need to ask one important question: What stores are open for Black Friday?

It's especially important to know if your store is going to open on Thanksgiving instead. Big-box favorites like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy like to start their sales on Turkey Day, but many smaller retailers opt to wait until Black Friday to open their doors.

DealNews has compiled a comprehensive list of opening times for each of the major retailers. More stores are releasing ads every day, so be sure to check back for more confirmations.

Please be aware that times may vary by retail location in some cases. Note that when we predict a shop will open on Thanksgiving and remain open straight through until closing on Black Friday, no closing time is noted for Thanksgiving. Additionally, some stores that remain open overnight into Black Friday are vague about when they'll close that day, so we only predict they'll be open on Black Friday.
