Kmart Thanksgiving & Black Friday Hours 2016 - Store Hours

Kmart Thanksgiving & Black Friday Hours 2016 - Store Hours

Many major chains such as Macy's, Best Buy, and Toys R Us are unlocking their doors on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. Walmart, Target, Kohl's and Sears will open at 6 p.m., while JCPenney will open at 3 p.m.

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year in stores and with that can come limited inventory.

Sharon Manikon, director of customer solutions at Barclaycard, said: "More than any other time of the year, retailers need to be prepared for high volumes of both purchases and returns during Black Friday". This year, Black Friday falls on November 25. Many cases what that does is triggers an internal email sent to you with a coupon that offers a better deal.

Thomas Cook has teased a "Sunny" Black Friday event and are now offering £50 off Summer 2017 holidays.

The holiday shopping season is about to officially kick off.

Ready to hit the stores for Black Friday? Just make sure you are taking these sales with a grain of salt.

Also, check for inflated discounts. The Apple Watch Series 1 will start at $198, regularly starting at $269.99, and the iPad Air 2 will start at $274, down from $399.99.

A great way to check this: use your smartphone. Call individual stores for more information. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is increasing the number of products for online orders by 50 percent for the holiday kickoff compared to a year ago.

In addition, many locally-owned stores will be offering extended hours and special sales this week, especially on Small Business Saturday.

Sorting through all of the Black Friday deals can be a lot of work for shoppers.

Use the store circular as your crib sheet.

The former - at least based on what happened in 2015 - benefits principally online retailers, whilst the latter benefits those retailers that have a physical presence on the high street.

Bed Bath & Beyond will be closed on Thanksgiving in some locations and will open at 6 a.m. Friday.

"Don't wait for Black Friday".

Also, check with your credit card companies.

Items usually run out online even before the stores open. You can get up to a $250 Best Buy gift card with purchase of any iPhone 7 and monthly installment plan. Your Amazon app is flawless for this when you're out, and you can price compare at the same time. And rather than hide things throughout the site, they've collected their price match items in one place. This means you'll have to time your trips to the store or the website. So why not just shop from the comfort of your home or office.

If you want to avoid the throng of shoppers that will flood the stores on Black Friday, Kmart will have early Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales!
