Black Friday prep time is here, deal-seekers! Conditions for consumers are already very different than they were during Black Friday 2020, but we're still waiting to see how some stores decide to tackle the shopping holiday. What stores will be open on Black Friday 2021, for example? If you haven't started putting together your plan yet, now's a good time to start! Black Friday is coming up next month, after all.

While we all love shopping online, we love saving money even more. For the sake of planning, it's vital to know answers to questions like "When does Black Friday start at different stores?" or "When does Black Friday end?"

To help you keep track, we've compiled a comprehensive list of projected and confirmed store hours for Thanksgiving and Black Friday 2021. Times for stores that haven't been confirmed yet are based on Black Friday store hours from 2020. Check back often, though — we'll keep updating this page with confirmed times.

Please be aware that hours may vary by retail location. And if a store hasn't confirmed a closing time for Thanksgiving, no closing time is noted for that day. We also don't provide Black Friday closing times that stores haven't confirmed.
