To be safe, CHECK YOUR LOCATION here before heading out.
According to the official Walmart press release:
The vast majority of Walmart stores will be open 24 hours on Thanksgiving Day with in-store specials kicking off at midnight and 5:00 a.m. on Friday, November 26. (Except as prohibited by local law. Please check your local store for confirmation of store hours.)
“The first store a person shops at is usually where they spend the most money,” said Ellen Davis of the National Retail Federation. “If you can bring somebody into a store before they visit any of your competitors, you’ve got an upper hand. That’s why it’s a big deal if you’re opening at 5 a.m. and your competitor is opening at 6 a.m. or 4 a.m. These early hours can be a huge competitive advantage.”
Walmart announced that most stores will open their doors at midnight to welcome families who want to get an early start on Christmas shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving and avoid standing in the cold waiting for stores to open. Starting at 12 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 26th, shoppers can head to the Walmart Open House for big savings on popular toys, apparel and home goods. Walmart will then kick off its electronics event doorbuster event at 5 a.m.
â€œNew for this year, Walmart is inviting customers to come at midnight for great savings on items like toys, pajamas, denim and small kitchen appliances and then stay for incredibly low prices on hot electronics, like HDTVs, computers and video games at five a.m.,â€ said Stephen Quinn, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Walmart U.S. â€œGiving families easier ways to save is important and offering great savings in our stores earlier this year â€“ starting at midnight â€“ is one way to make that happen.â€
