Black Friday Store Hours: When Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Costco and More Stores Open?

Some stores will open on Thanksgiving this year for shoppers who muster the energy post Thanksgiving dinner for some shopping but those who don't make it out to the store will have the option to get their shopping done on Friday.

Black Friday is a shopping tradition for many people that involves getting all their gifts for the holiday season early on at large discounts. All types of stores participate and discount items like electronics and clothing to jewelry and kitchen appliances.

Different stores have different hours though, just because one is open does not guarantee others like it will be as well. The big chain stores like Walmart, Target and Kohl's had their hours and deals for Black Friday posted online more than a week before the shopping holiday was set to begin.

Before shoppers head to specific stores Friday they should check their specific store's hours just in case the store isn't following the same times as the others across the country. In states where blue laws are in place, stores won't be open on Thanksgiving at all.
