Black Friday no more: Thanksgiving-night openings a trend this year



Several major retailers have released their Black Friday store hours, and shoppers will likely be skipping dessert on Thanksgiving to snag in-store deals.

Kohl's and JCPenney have both announced that they will open their doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night (Nov. 28).

According to, “Kohl's will be open 28 straight hours from 8 p.m. Thursday until midnight on Friday night. Kohl's operates 1,158 stores in 49 states.”

Macy’s announced last week that they, too, would begin their Black Friday deals at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

Toys R’ Us will be opening their doors at some locations at 10 p.m. Nov. 28th and other locations at midnight.

As more stores continue to announce their openings, experts say it’s likely they will be jumping on the Thanksgiving night opening trend.
