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 and Best Buy 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 Best Buy, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and Samsung laptop bundles.
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.
South Hills Village will open its doors as soon as midnight strikes. And the nearby Tanger Outlets will open at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
The recently-relocated Trunk Shows Boutique on Route 19 are having a huge BOGO special. Buy one get one free on scarves, gloves, clothing, ornaments and home decor. Here are the hours:
Doorbusters only 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Doorbusters only 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If there's anything left, Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
