Stores fighting for Black Friday sales aim for convenience

Get ready for the holiday: What's open on Thanksgiving, Black Friday?

So are any Dollar Stores open on Thanksgiving Day?

"We really just knew from a customer standpoint of getting people into the building and allowing them to find everything they want all at the same time - that way they won't have to make a whole bunch of trips", said Derek Newton, assistant store manager of operations. Well, there will absolutely be some great Black Friday deals all week long, especially on TVs, tech, kitchen appliances, and clothing. Then again, some shoppers simply love the chaos and excitement of Black Friday - crowds, confusing pricing, and all. However, Black Friday shopping might not be worth all the hype, at least according to some analysts.

"This suggests that, while Black Friday is clearly encouraging shoppers to buy, consumers are more likely to be purchasing smaller "treat" products, rather than splashing out on high-end items". Opens at 6 a.m. on Black Friday.

Target said early Friday morning that more shoppers shopped using the Target app, ordering more than double compared to previous year.

Sears: Opens at 6 midnight on Thanksgiving.

Target and Best Buy opened their doors at 5 p.m. And customers, frustrated with long checkout lines, can check out at Walmart and other stores with a salesperson in store aisles.

'Since Black Friday was adopted by Britons back in 2013, retailers have increasingly moved offers online, and that coincidentally is where a higher proportion of younger consumers can be found'.

For Publix, it's website says that all stores and pharmacies will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. On Black Friday doors open at 8 a.m. Make that list and pick the best shopping time to take advantage of that deal.

"Don't just look around, as you may be tempted to buy something you didn't need", agrees Rita Cool, Certified Financial Planner at Alexander Forbes.

The day after US Thanksgiving has become a major shopping phenomenon across the United States and Canada. As of early morning Friday, the Macy's flagship store in NY, which opened all night, had a steady stream of shoppers, mostly tourists.

In addition to Kohl's, their Thanksgiving night shopping schedule included trips to Target, Hallmark and "probably Walmart" before additional stops on Friday.

GameStop: Opens at 3 p.m. until 10 p.m.
