Have you heard the holiday news? While Black Friday 2013 officially occurs on Nov. 29, 2013, some retailers are offering Black Friday or online steals-and-deals early this year. Way, way early! According to a Chicago Tribune article published on Nov. 4, Kmart will kick off a 41-hour holiday extravaganza beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning until 11:00 p.m. on Black Friday!
Black Friday 2013 Shopping Starts Early
Sears will open its doors at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening and pull an all-nighter, staying open until 10:00 p.m. on Black Friday. Bargain hunters can also find bottom-dollar prices online and on those handy-dandy mobile devices. According to a press release:
"Sears and Kmart stores will open on Thanksgiving Day for Shop Your Way members and customers who want to get an early start on their holiday shopping. Members and customers can shop Black Friday deals from Kmart for 41 hours straight, starting at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day to 11 p.m. on Black Friday. Sears stores will open doors starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day through 10 p.m. on Black Friday, with more than 1,000 doorbusters available until 1 p.m. Friday afternoon."
And Kmart and Sears aren't the only stores getting a jump-start on the Black Friday specials. Walmart, OfficeMax, JC Penny, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Target, Dell and Macy's will open on Thanksgiving, too! And Best Buy just announced it will be kickin' off Black Friday doorbuster steals-and-deals on electronics and handy-dandy gadgets early as well!
While some major retailers are willing to open on Thanksgiving Day, some consumers just aren't buying it! Although hardcore shoppers searching for bottom-dollar prices may enjoy the extra shopping time, many Americans believe the holidays have become far too commercialized. Isn't Thanksgiving a time to give thanks and spend time with friends, family and loved ones? What do you think?
