Black Friday 2018 is finally here. It’s one of the biggest shopping days of the year, when deals and discounts abound and Black Friday crowds are sure to descend on every mall and big-box retail chain from coast to coast.

So when do stores open on Black Friday this year? Black Friday store hours vary quite a bit, but many of the biggest retail chains start the day extra early on Friday, Nov. 23. Target opens on Black Friday 2018 at 7 a.m., but other stores, like Dick’s Sporting Goods, Cabela’s, and Sears, open even earlier, at 5 a.m. Others, like Apple and Barnes & Noble, open on Black Friday at the relatively leisurely hour of 8 a.m.

Still, other stores open on Black Friday long before the sun comes up. For example, JCPenney’s Black Friday store hours basically start the day before, on Thanksgiving Day. Most JCPenney stores open at 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving and stay open overnight into Black Friday, before finally closing at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23.

What are the Black Friday store hours at Walmart? Well, most Walmarts are open 24 hours a day around the year, even on Thanksgiving. So Walmart stores are open on Black Friday as early as you want to get there. But you may want to time your Walmart Black Friday shopping excursion strategically: Walmart is rolling out different rounds of Black Friday deals over Thanksgiving weekend, with doorbusters and special discounts launching online at 10 p.m. on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, followed by more deals starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving in most locations — and, in all likelihood, even more new deals beginning on the morning of Black Friday.

Here are all the Black Friday store hours at over 50 major retail chains.
