Thanksgiving is coming up, and with it, Black Friday. Black Friday marks the beginning of the busiest shopping season of the year when shoppers pursue their gift-shopping list with increased urgency.

When is Black Friday?

Officially, Black Friday lands on Friday, November 29.

But like many other retail holidays, Black “Friday” really starts a few days, or even earlier at some stores, before the real event. The high levels of anticipation for deals are enough to make retailers launch their sales early.

That’s probably better for shoppers anyway. It means they have extra time to shop the countless online sales at their leisure, rather than try to cram all their shopping into one hectic day.

What time does Black Friday start?

Here’s when Black Friday starts at various retailers. While a handful will start their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day, there are also many that won’t be open on the holiday. We will share the start dates and times of more stores as they’re announced.

How long do Black Friday sales last?

Again, don’t be fooled by the name that suggests it’s a single day. Black Friday sales usually last at least a few days, whether they start early or continue on until Cyber Monday.
