Shoppers and retailers alike are getting ready for another holiday season.
Not so long ago, shoppers rose at dawn to grab Black Friday door busters that were arguably the best deals of the holiday season.
Now, shoppers can grab those same bargains without leaving the couch. They don’t even have to wait until Black Friday.
Target said Monday that for the fourth year in a row, it will open its doors at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Shoppers will have until midnight to browse store aisles, or can be there bright and early the next morning when stores reopen at 6 a.m.
And for those who’d rather not brave the crowds or the cold, Black Friday bargains will pop up online Thanksgiving morning, and the items will be delivered for free.
Store openings on Thanksgiving Day have become a new tradition as retailers make an earlier grab for consumer dollars during what is the industry’s most lucrative time of year. Last week, Toys R Us said that for the third consecutive holiday season, it will open its doors on Thanksgiving Day and not close them until thirty hours later.
A few major retailers have leaked their Black Friday deals already and some even are running their sales right now.
