Black Friday comes early
Black Friday seems to come earlier every year. Last year, stores started opening their doors for the “official” beginning of the holiday shopping season at midnight, instead of 5 or 6 a.m., on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This year, stores such as Sears, Kmart, and Walmart are opening their doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Next year, who knows – stores may open even earlier.
Luckily for you intrepid shoppers, it’s not just about waiting outside a Kmart in line at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day to nab one of six or seven $88 24-inch 1080p HDTVs the store has in stock. Instead, you can shop even earlier – in the weeks before Black Friday even comes on the scene. Plenty of retailers are offering “early bird” Black Friday deals that you can grab right now. Here are 10 of the best early Black Friday deals we found on the web.
