Best Black Friday Deals in Duluth

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday rule the shopping roost after Thanksgiving.

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!

Walmart announced that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22, 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, Kmart, Sears, and Toys R Us are also planning to open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving night.

Target's deals begin at 9 p.m. Thursday. 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 Best Buy, doors open at midnight Thursday. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and Samsung laptop bundles. Kohl's is also opening at midnight.

Walmart 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.

According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have doorbuster sales on Thursday night or at midnight on Friday.

For the early morning traditionalists, some stores will open as early as 4 a.m.  You can check your favorite retailers' hours at the Black Friday Store Hours website.

Want to avoid the holiday shopping mega-crowds altogether? Look for Cyber Monday deals on Nov. 26 or visit your local mom-and-pop retailers on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24.

I hate reading this. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a family holiday, not an opportunity to rush out to a store and buy electronic junk. I never go shopping on black Friday -- not even to the grocery store.

I think it would be a great thing for Walmart, etc to close for the holiday and let their employees have a holiday too.

On Black Friday during normal business hours, like 9am to 9pm, sure. Not on Thanksgiving though. Retail workers have a tough time with all the hours they have to work as it is, I don't think it's fair to them that they have to work on a holiday.

Holidays are becoming so commercialized! I remember as a kid, I'm 55, family came from all over, kids slept on the floor and played continuously, older family sat around and visited for days, then everyone went home. It always started the holiday season out wonderfully!!! Sad how a lot of people don't think about the family part of it anymore, and it's all about shopping!! The old days WERE much better!
