The turkey may still be brining, but this year’s holiday discounts have already begun.
Kohl’s kicked off its turkey-day discounts on Monday, while Old Navy is offering 50 percent off everything beginning Wednesday. By the time Thanksgiving morning rolls around, nearly every major retailer will be offering Black Friday deals online in an effort to get customers to open their wallets before they’ve baked their first pie.
The majority of Americans say they’ll shop online this holiday season, with Internet sales poised to surpass $100 billion for the first time. But that’s not stopping retailers from opening their stores as early as ever (in some cases, even earlier).
For those hoping to snag deals in stores, here’s a roundup of what’s opening when.
6 a.m. Kmart is one of the first to open, continuing a five-year streak of early-morning deals. So-called door busters will be offered until 2 p.m. Friday.
7 a.m. Dollar General opens its stores.
2 p.m. JC Penney opens an hour earlier than it did last year.
3 p.m. Old Navy, which began offering Black Friday deals at 6 a.m. Wednesday, opens it doors for another day of holiday discounts.
8 a.m. Best Buy opens again.
