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 stores' web sites.

Individual stores may choose to open at times other than the official hours due to local regulations or other reasons. You are advised to verify the specific 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, the opening times for 2013 and 2012 are also available to view.

Notes

Bealls: This is the store named Bealls in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona and the store named Bealls Outlet. (Stores named "Bealls" in other states are a different business.)

Bon-Ton Stores: These are the stores named Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's and Younkers.

Five Below: Still TBA. However, last year opening times varied greatly, divided evenly among 8 pm Thursday, 12 midnight Friday, and 5 am Friday. People had to see fivebelow.com for individual store hours.

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

Modell's Sporting Goods: Some stores open Friday 12:01 am to 4:00 am instead of on Thanksgiving.

Sears, Sears Appliance & Hardware, Sears Hometown, Sears Outlet: These stores have similar names, but each is a separate store with its own individual hours.

Stage Stores: These are the stores named Bealls (except Florida, Georgia, and Arizona), Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles, and Stage. (Stores named Bealls in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona are a different business.)

Toys R Us and Babies R Us: Listed hours are for most stores nationwide. There is a listing of specific hours for individual stores. Combination Toys R Us/Babies R Us stores generally adhere to the Toys R Us opening schedule.

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

Kmart - 6am Thursday (Yes, this is the Black Friday sale, not a Thanksgiving sale)

So, it ended up that the KING5 article back in October was wrong. They said Best Buy would open at 6 pm on Thanksgiving. That turned out to be incorrect. Instead, Best Buy is opening at 5 pm (and closing at Friday 1 am, to reopen again at 8 am). That's an example of why I don't add information to the opening times list until it is confirmed or reported by a reputable source.

Do we have a list for stores and their online shopping start times for prices in ads?

I usually don't shop online, so I don't pay attention to information about online shopping start times for stores.

From past years my impression is that online shopping start times are highly unpredictable. I believe that in many cases actual start times tend to be random and earlier than advertised start times.

Most of the ads don't say what time the sales start online so it's too hard to guess.
