According to the 'shopping experts' at ABC, here are some of the best deals to look for this Black Friday and the store hours for some of the most popular stores. However, keep in mind that 'Black Friday' is really starting on Thanksgiving this year at most of the major retailers:

    • Walmart kicks off the holiday shopping season on Thanksgiving when its doors open at 6 p.m. One of this year's better deals is the low price of $27 for some of the more popular video games, including FIFA 16 and Madden 16.
    • Target will open their doors at 6pm on Thanksgiving. They are offering Parrot Drones for as low as $69.99. (Don't tell Banana Don...)
    • Meijer has Thanksgiving deals that start at 6am. They are offering a 49" LED HDTV for as low as $169.99 and Beats Solo 2 headphones are 50% off.
    • Best Buy will open at 5pm on Thanksgiving. They also have a great TV deal that includes a 49-inch HDTV for $149.99.
    • Kohl's will open at 6pm on Thanksgiving. Their doorbuster deals include 50% off toys from Fisher-Price, Payskool, Barbie and Hot Wheels.
    • Toys R Us will open at 5pm on Thanksgiving. They are offering LEGO Ultra Agents construction sets for 30% off.

Keep in mind that MANY deals are being offered, if you don't want to deal with all the crowds, you can always stay home in your pajamas and order stuff online. Or...just sit and watch football OR actually talk to your family....(I know...crazy, right?)
