It's nearly that time of year again — deck the halls, 'tis the season and such. We also know that means embracing the hallmark tradition of spoiling your loved ones a little bit, and for some, no holiday season is complete without Black Friday shopping. Fortunately, there are tons of online Black Friday sales out there, but if you prefer securing your gifts in person, some big-name retailers are already giving the lowdown on when to shop in stores. So, beat the mad dash and stress by organizing a game plan now.
Though major chains like Walmart will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, you'll have a chance to tick off your shopping list once Black Friday officially rolls around.
Stores run the gamut for hours, opening as early as 5 a.m. like Walmart, while CVS will keep its doors open for 24 hours and others such as Macy's close as late as midnight.

When is Black Friday in 2022?
Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 24, which means Black Friday begins on November 25.
What time does Black Friday start?
As mentioned above, it all depends on the store! Typically, many retailers will close their doors on Thanksgiving Day but will open earlier than usual to meet the Black Friday crowd. When it comes to online shopping, deals usually begin days, if not weeks before November 25.
What is the best time to go Black Friday shopping?
When it comes to physically heading into a store, your best bet is getting out there pretty early to make sure you can snag what you need on November 25. However, you'll likely be able to also take advantage of amazing discounts way before Black Friday hits as in recent years, we've seen the discounts have started earlier and earlier, even in stores.
For online shopping, you could start hunting for deals at least a month earlier. "Last year’s day-of Black Friday deals were no less impressive than the markdowns in the weeks leading up to the event, so start deal-hunting by October," says Jessica Teich, deputy editor at the Good Housekeeping Institute.
Do Black Friday sales continue into Saturday?
Yes! Although Black Friday is technically just 24 hours, many stores will keep their steep discounts and deals running all weekend long and even into the following week to compete with the Cyber Monday discounts offered online.
