What Time Does Your Store Open for Black Friday?


Black Friday has been an annual tradition with my family for my entire adult life — it is a fun way to kickoff the holiday shopping season with my mom, sisters and best friend. This year, with so many stores opening at midnight or earlier, it’s more like Thanksgiving shopping. And, I am so not happy about it.

There are still a few that will open with a more reasonable traditional start time — you know, around dawn! We haven’t worked out our Black Friday shopping strategy yet, but it looks like the group will be splitting up for some midnight openings, skipping the Thanksgiving openings and reuniting at Meijer for the 4am opening. Check out the Black Friday start times below:
