Ah, Thanksgiving. It’s the cherished holiday in which we gather with our loved ones to stand in line outside of a Best Buy to get a great deal on an Xbox.
Wait…that doesn’t sound right!
It seems kind of crazy, but these days, the holiday is less about giving thanks and more about the Black Friday super sales.
In fact, most of the stores don’t even wait for Friday. They open Thanksgiving Day to get a jump start on the holiday season.
Opening on Turkey Day is a pretty controversial decision. In fact, Rhode Island, Maine, and Masschusetts have passed laws forbidding it, but if you can’t wait to get your shop on, here’s Heavy.com’s guide to when the major retailers will be opening their doors on Thursday, Nov. 27:
Best Buy: Opening at 6 p.m.
Big Lots: TBA (likely opening at 7 a.m. like last year)
