Background

This is a list of confirmed store opening times, confirmed via adscans, press releases, news articles, or signs seen in stores. This list is for physical retail stores only, not online stores or online sales for retail store web sites.

Individual stores may choose to open at non-standard times due to local regulations or other reasons. You are advised to verify opening times for your local stores before heading out to shop.

This is the list I compile each year. Bfads.net also has its own official list of Black Friday hours, but this list strives to provide more detail. For reference purposes, last year's opening times are also available to view.

Notes

Bealls: This covers Bealls stores in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona and Bealls Outlet stores. Stores named "Bealls" in other states are owned by a different company (see Note for "Stage Stores").

Best Buy: Maine and Puerto Rico opening time is 12:01 a.m. Friday. Massachusetts and Rhode Island opening time is 1 am Friday.

Big Lots: In Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, stores are closed on Thanksgiving day, and the Thursday sale will take place on Wednesday instead.

Bon-Ton Stores: This includes stores under these labels: Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers.

Five Below: Opening times vary greatly, divided evenly among 8 pm Thursday, 12 midnight Friday, and 5 am Friday. See fivebelow.com for individual store hours.

GameStop: Most stores open at midnight. The remaining stores open at 5 am.

Modell's: For stores not allowed to open on Thanksgiving Day, the "Thursday night" early bird deals will instead take place on Friday from 12:01 am to 4 am.

Sears, Sears Hometown, Sears Outlet: There are separate hours and listings for Sears, Sears Hometown, and Sears Outlet stores.

Shopko and Shopko Hometown: There are separate hours and listings for Shopko and Shopko Hometown.

Stage Stores: This includes stores under these labels: Bealls (except Florida, Georgia, and Arizona), Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles, and Stage. Stores named "Bealls" in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona are owned by a different company (see Note for "Bealls").

(I'll keep updating this top post as new information is received.)

Macy's starting DoorBusters at 8pm is great thing and love how the Offical ad says "Start After Thanksgiving Dinner" awesome tagline

It does not hurt to open early and get the jump.

Best Buy is rumored to have buckled to pressure from their competitors and will be opening at either 6 or 7 PM, depending upon Wal-Mart's next move.

6:00? I'd say "those poor people outside in line," but they'll get to be home 6 hours earlier than they usually would, so that's a good thing.

However, that means that we're one step closer to Best Buy having a catered Thanksgiving dinner for the people in line. Arby's turkey sandwiches for everyone! ;)

So far there is an almost even split between stores opening Thursday (22 stores) vs. ones opening Friday (21 stores).

this is changing my whole shopping plan.... I would prefer to not shop on Thursday but it looks like I am going to be hitting up a few stores. Rather than cpmplain about it I will just think hey, Might not be out all night. Any thoughts about certain states/towns/bylaws or individual stores making a choice to not open at these times??

I have to say I miss the says of stores starting their sales at midnight Friday or 4 a.m. on Friday. It was a better experience in my opinion getting up when everyone else is still sleeping, seeing folks shopping in their pjs and then getting some breakfast after scoring some great deals. I am not a fan of starting earlier and earlier on Thanksgiving day.
