Again, I really would like a $97 tv, but the 8pm start time is ridiculous. I think that's the earliest one I've seen so far.

Does anyone know if Sears will be offering doorbusters online? I have never done online BF shopping before. I want a TV (only 4 per store), but I don't think I can get to Sears before the line gets outrageous.

I'm seriously considering the 50' TV they have on sale for our local Sears (population of under 10K). The only thing is I"m having a hard time gauging us how early I should get there for that deal if it's at 8PM. I hate to miss my in-laws Thanksgiving...but to save that kind of money is too hard to pass up.

Someone should post a comparison between the Sears and Kmart ads to see how many items are the exact same thing at both stores. That 32" Proscan TV at Sears at 8pm is the same one that Kmart's offering at 6am, making it an official "second chance" item.

ProScan was RCA's higher end TV, I'm not sure if they are still much more superior to RCA though, That 50" ProScan LCD 1080p is most certainly a bangin' deal

I was thinking about this too...what about Sears "Hometown" Stores?

For instance, the one in my town is a locally owned store and all they carry really is appliances, TV's, lawn and garden, etc. No clothes, jewelery, or things of that nature.

Has anyone had any experience with Sears "Hometown" stores and whether they have the big ticket items like perhaps Outlet stores would?

We had a Sears Grand around here for a while. I never ventured in there on Black Friday, but I remember seeing - in years past - that the 'Grand' and 'Outlet' Sears stores had their own Black Friday deals. Perhaps the 'Hometown' stores will be doing something similar this year?

I'd check with the management there and find out if they're partaking in any of the BF deals.

In an effort to be first to offer Black Friday deals this year, Sears announced on Thursday that customers can shop the store's "doorbuster" discounts online starting Nov. 18, five days before the retail holiday.

The early deal-hunting is available for two days to members of Sears' Shop Your Way program, a free membership program that customers can join online or in stores. Select items that the retailer is offering on Black Friday will be available through Nov. 19 at 11:59 p.m. CT.

Just read this and thought I would share. I will have to take a good look at the Sears ad.

I saw that too and figured, it's free so if they have the TV it'll save me the headache of trying to wait for one on BF and open up other possibilities.

I have a locally owned and operated Sears "Hometown" Store in my town. I went in to talk to them today to see what they knew about what they were doing for Black Friday.

1) This store will NOT be open on Thanksgiving. At all. They WILL open at 4AM Friday. (When I asked about the 8PM Thursday deals then being on sale at 4AM Friday, they said they'll hand them out then.

2) This store is primarily an appliance store (no jewelry, clothes, shoes, etc). They said they would honor all the BF deals. Which shouldn't come as a surprise, but just in case the locally owned ones operate differently, that might be a hiccup.

3) She recommended to me to get here at 10PM on Friday. Even though they're a smaller store, they have a lot of people lined up. (With the 8PM sales else where, I wonder if this will hurt their crowd, but experience has taught me to err on the side of caution.)

4) They hadn't seen the BF ads yet when I asked them about it. They pulled up the site and was surprised at the deals. Some mentioned that they were going to get family in on it. "/

So - if you have a locally owned "Hometown" Sears store, definitely give them a visit and plan. I would say though, wait until the week of.

Thanks for this! I have my eyes set on the Nook Touch for a gift, but just can't make it to Sears that night!
