Walmart Joins Effort To Turn Thanksgiving Thursday Into Black Friday

A handful of retailers recently announced they would open late on Thanksgiving Thursday for Black Friday shoppers, but serious bargain shoppers just landed the biggest fish of them all: Walmart.

Opening the pages of its Black Friday ads for Facebook and Twitter fans, Walmart announced it will open earlier than ever before — at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving — for hardcore shoppers. So if you’re looking to save on electronics and toys, prepare to push away from the dinner table and hit the road.

Also opening early, at midnight on Thanksgiving, are Target, Macy’s and Kohl’s. Great Lakes Crossing in Auburn Hills will open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving while Tanger Outlets in West Branch and Howell open at 10 p.m.

Walmart’s doorbuster deals, starting at 10 p.m., will include a 40-inch Emerson flat screen TV for $248, a 32-inch for $188, and a laptop computer for $248. See the Walmart Black Friday ad here.

    The next thing you know, these stores will all be open on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day, leaving minimum wage workers with no time to spend with their families. Give us all a break!

    Shoppers…Is the bargin really worth keeping a parent away for holidays? Just because they open at 10 or 12 doesn’t mean that there are not people working all day to get it all ready for shoppers….. I will be boycotting Walmart. Nothing I give for the holidays will be bought in a walmart store…. Black friday should stay as it has always been. Let people be with there family also!
