Planning on shopping the Black Friday sales this year? Then you’ll need to know when retailers will open their doors.

Black Friday traditionally takes place the day after Thanksgiving. But for years now, retailers and outlet stores have started kicking off their Black Friday sales a day early, opening their doors to eager shoppers on Thanksgiving. Still, several retail chains — including BJ's, Dillards, Nordstrom, Costco, Sam's Club, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls — have held the line, preferring to stick with Friday as the big kickoff to the holiday shopping season.

To help you plan your deal-hunting we've put together an alphabetical list of retailers, indicating which stores will be open on Thanksgiving, which are waiting until Friday, and what times each will open and close their doors to shoppers. Please note that opening times could vary by state, so you may want to call stores a few days before Thanksgiving to verify hours and time limits on door busters.

There are strict laws in Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island preventing most stores from opening on Thanksgiving. The earliest that most retail stores can open is 12:01 a.m. on Friday.
