Posted at 6:27 PM, Nov 12, 2018

Once again, many major retailers will open on Thanksgiving evening, with many offering their best Black Friday deals to customers before the calendar even turns to Friday. 

Although most large retailers are now expected to be open on Thanksgiving evening, it appears the trend of stores opening even earlier on Thanksgiving has ended. 

According to, most of the largest retailers will wait until Thanksgiving evening to open. That means customers should be able to have time to eat some turkey before getting in line to score big deals. For instance, Kohl's, Macy's, Target and Best Buy will open at 5 p.m., while Walmart, Sears and Dick's Sporting Goods begin sales at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. 

In some cases, customers will be able to shop all night after Thanksgiving and into the morning on Black Friday. Walmart, Old Navy and Kohl's are among a handful of retailers that will remain open all night. Target, Best Buy, Macy's are among a number of retailers that will close for a few hours and reopen early on Black Friday.
