The key to snagging the best deals is proper planning. Find out when you should hit the stores!

It's never too soon to start thinking about it: Black Friday will be here next month! While we all love shopping online, we love saving money even more, and that can mean braving the crowds for store-only Black Friday doorbusters. For the sake of planning, it's vital to know when stores will be open.

Speaking of plans, it's absolutely essential to know whether the stores you're visiting will be open on Thanksgiving. While big-box retailers like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy usually open their doors on Turkey Day, many other stores will stay shuttered until Black Friday itself.

To help you keep track, we've compiled a comprehensive list of projected Black Friday store hours. Most stores have yet to announce theirs (with a few exceptions), so these are our predictions based on Black Friday store hours from 2017. Check back often, though — we'll keep updating this page with confirmed times.

Please be aware that, in certain cases, hours may vary by retail location. And when we predict a shop will open on Thanksgiving and remain open until closing on Black Friday, no closing time is noted for that Thursday. Additionally, some stores that remain open overnight into Black Friday are vague about when they'll close, so we only predict they'll be open on Black Friday.

Note: Stores marked with an asterisk (*) have projected hours that haven't been confirmed yet for 2018. When in doubt, contact your local store.
