Black Friday Retail Hours

The holidays are right around the corner, and that means that stores will be gearing up for the busiest day of the holiday season-Black Friday. Stores are unveiling their plans for one of the most critical days of the holiday shopping season.

Many of the retailers have already released their Black Friday ads giving shoppers a peek at what kind of deals they can score. Target has released their Black Friday ad and shoppers will not be disappointed by the selection of deals this year. 

The ad states that most Target stores will open 6 p.m. Thanksgiving evening and close at midnight. On Black Friday, stores will reopen at 6 a.m.

Mark Tritton, Target executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said in a release, “When you consider the breadth of our Black Friday offers, guests can save more across Target than any other time of the year, with literally thousands of deals to choose from”

The 40-page ad features everything from 4k television sets to popular gaming systems. Just a few of the great deals featured in the ad are- The Dyson V6 animal will sell for 249.99, $250 off regular price. Xbox One S 500GB for $189.99, plus get a $25 gift card.
