Holiday Gift Guide: 2013 Black Friday Part 2…

Every year more and more stores are opening earlier and earlier to try and get the most business they possibly can for Black Friday.  However, in the past few years it has become an increasing trend for many stores to actually open on Thanksgiving Day.  While this is not a new idea for some of the major stores such as Target and Walmart, many of the smaller retailers are taking to this also.

Make sure you’re ready for Black Friday this year! Map out your shopping trip and know what stores you want to go to and when you want to be there.  Also, know the sales and deals before you leave so you make sure you hit all the stores that you want to hit.  Black Friday shopping is all about your strategy, so make sure you have a good one so that you can save as much money as possible and get all of the gifts that you need. To help you map out your plan and make a successful strategy, here is a list of some of the major stores that will be opening on Thanksgiving Day and the time that they will open!
