Traditionally stores are closed on Thanksgiving Day. This year more stores than ever will open their stores on Thanksgiving Day. Sears has already announced that they will open from 7am to noon offering a special Thanksgiving Day Sale.
Reuters reports that Walmart also will open their stores on Thanksgiving Day. You need to check though if your local Walmart will be open, as your city ordinance might enforce that shops stay closed on Thanksgiving Day.
I highly recommend though to stay home and shop Thanksgiving Day online for the first Black Friday deals. You can enjoy the Turkey with your family and then hit the web to score Black Friday deals. Most retailers will start to offer their Black Friday deals already Thanksgiving Day. We will be alerting you to when the deals become available on Thanksgiving Day in our Black Friday Hub. Follow us on Twitter to not miss deal.
If you did not get your hands on a Black Friday deal on Thanksgiving Day you still can go out in the morning to hit your local mall. This way you keep all your chances intact.
