Thanksgiving & Black Friday 2017 Store Hours: Many Stores Open TODAY

It's finally here! Many stores will open for sales this evening, so make sure you plan accordingly.
Black Friday store hours

Update: you might not need to shop in-store at all. Check out the top Black Friday deals here.

We've spent weeks preparing, and now it's finally here: It's Thanksgiving Day, and that means Black Friday sales are going live as we speak.

While a lot of deals will be available online this year — we found that only 5% of Black Friday ads are in-store only — there will always be a few doorbusters that you can only get by lining up. So what stores are open for Black Friday? And when?

Big-box favorites like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy like to start their sales on Turkey Day. (Even Macy's has Thanksgiving hours, as if the parade wasn't enough for them to manage!) After the big hitters, many smaller retailers opt to wait until Black Friday to open their doors.

Below is a list of all the store times we could find. At this point, most of the major stores have already announced their Black Friday hours, but there are a few notable holdouts like Apple (although they might not do anything at all this year since they're stingy for discounts).

Times may vary by retail location and most hours are based on local times. Note that when a shop will open on Thanksgiving and remain open straight through until closing on Black Friday, no closing time is noted for Thanksgiving. Additionally, some stores that remain open overnight into Black Friday are vague about when they'll close that day, so we only predict they'll be open on Black Friday.

Readers, what are you shopping for this Black Friday? Will you opt for Target, Best Buy, or Walmart Thanksgiving hours, or opt for Black Friday shopping instead?
