Retailers are pushing the envelope again this Thanksgiving with earlier store openings. Target announced on Monday that it’s opening on Thanksgiving at 9 p.m. at some stores for its Black Friday sale.
Walmart and Sears will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Kmart will be open Thanksgiving Day 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., then it will close and reopen 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Macy’s, Kohl’s and Best Buy open at midnight.
Some employees and their families have expressed frustration with the earlier store opening time, saying it cuts into family celebrations.
