Ushering in Thanksgiving month with a bang, Kohl’s is the latest retailer to announce a midnight opening on Black Friday.The Wisconsin-based department store will open its doors nationwide at 12 a.m. Nov. 25 and remain open for 24 straight hours, it announced in a note to investors Tuesday.
And if you’re just dying to pre-game beforehand, the company is serving up early bird specials online before stores open.
The announcement came a day after Macy’s said it would open 1,700 of its locations at midnight on Black Friday. But Target has them both beat with plans to usher in shoppers at 10 p.m. at 1,700 of its locations on Thanksgiving evening.
Retail Goliath Wal-mart is still playing hard to get, having yet to reveal whether it will try to top its trailblazing midnight openings from last year.
If it’s gadgets you’re after this Black Friday, read up on some reasons why it might be better to buy them in-store this year.
