If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year—starting on Thanksgiving Day!
Last week, Walmart (in Weymouth) announced that it would open its doors at 1 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 23 and offer holiday doorbusters while supplies last. These include deals on TVs, iPads, an electric scooter for $79 and a steam mop for $39.
Not to be outdone, Target (at the South Shore Plaza) and Best Buy (right in Braintree) are also planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.
Target's deals begin at 9 p.m. According to an ad leaked online, the best deals will be for TVs, a Nook, a Nikon camera and an XBOX 360 Kinect bundle.
At the Best Buy in Braintree, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and Samsung laptop bundles.
The Walmart in Weyouth will offer its biggest deals from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items at low prices—an iPad, a TV and a Blu-ray player. If the store runs out, you can still buy them at discounted prices but you must register for them online by midnight and have them delivered to your local store.
The stores at Derby Street Shoppes, Hingham Shipyard and Hingham Square will also have major deals. The majority of customers on Derby Street last year flocked to the Apple Store, Kohl's, Game Stop, and Barnes & Noble.
According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have doorbuster sales on Thursday night or at midnight on Friday, including Kohl's in Hingham.
For the early morning traditionalists, some stores will open at 4 a.m. with special sales. If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages.
