  • Craft Warehouse: Opening hours vary depending on location. Most stores open at 6 am Friday. Some stores open at 4 am or 5 am.
  • Five Below: Opening times have traditionally varied greatly from store to store. See fivebelow.com for the exact hours for a given store.
  • Kohl's: ME and RI open Thursday midnight, MA open Friday 1 am.
  • Ocean State Job Lot: MA, ME, and RI stores closed on Thanksgiving.
  • Olympia Sports: Some stores open Thursday. Stores open by 5 am Friday, maybe earlier. See http://www.olympiasports.net for individual store hours.
  • Sears, Sears Appliance & Hardware, Sears Hometown, Sears Outlet: These stores have similar names, but each is a separate store with its own individual hours. Sears ME,RI, MA, and other stores closed Thanksgiving and open Friday at midnight or later. See sears.com/stores for individual store hours.
  • Stage Stores: These are the stores named Stage, Bealls (except ones in Florida), Goody's, Palais Royal, and Peebles. (Stores named "Bealls" in Florida are a different business owned by a different company.)

  • Toys R Us: Opening times might vary, including stores in NJ, ME, MA, RI, PR. Hours for individual stores can be found at: http://www.toysrus.com/BlackFridayStoreHours
Background

This is a list of confirmed store opening times, confirmed via adscans, press releases, reliable 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 2015, 2014, 2013, and 2012 are also available to view.

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

KMart always has regular store hours on Black Friday. Got burned once thinking they opened at 6am. Nope, regular hours

LOL nope too bad, actually one year I called and they opened at 6am so we showed up and no one was there in the lot.
Doors were open, lights on - we went in and they said yes they opened at 6am but the paper mistakenly said 7am - we had the run of the store for an hour.

They are also open on Thanksgiving and at least ours usually has the BF prices live during the T-day sale as well.

I keep people telling me "what are you going to do.... all of the stores are going back to opening Friday morning now!"
when really I think they've just seen the list of the stores that ALWAYS only open Friday morning. It's cracking me up.

Unfortunately a lot of the malls are closing Thanksgiving this year. Stores inside are obviously forced to be closed as well.

Honestly, I'm okay if the mall is closed on Thursday. BF is meant to be on...BF lol.
That's funny about Kmart, ours has always opened at 6am, or before the Thursday takeover, they conveniently opened 1hr after Walmart. Which was great, so you could get whatever you were getting at WM, then hop over to KM.

I don't have a Macy's near me, so it really doesn't change my situation much.

I agree with that lol!

Don't mind the malls closing at all. Don't like a lot of these stores opening all the way through the night either. Pretty dangerous in areas.

As for KMART, funny how one of the pioneers of opening early and usurping Thanksgiving will be on the way out soon. The store is a ghost town of items compared to what it used to be.
