Planning Your Black Friday Shopping? Here's the List of Stores Open in Our Area and When

Can you believe there's a little more than 30 days until Christmas? Every year I find myself wondering, "Where did the time go?" If you are already putting together your holiday shopping strategy, the list we've compiled below (with help from BestBlackFriday.com) may help by letting you know which stores are open, and when. Thanksgiving night? Early Friday morning? Most of what you need is here.

Here, also, is what's considered to be the top five busiest shopping days. Just in case you want to avoid these altogether:

  1. November 23,  Black Friday
  2. December 22, "Super Saturday" - last Saturday before Christmas
  3. December 15 - third Saturday in December
  4. December 23 - Sunday before Christmas
  5. November 24 - Saturday after Black Friday

And don't forget, there's also Small Business Saturday, Museum Store Sunday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday.
