Black Friday 2012 Deals Begin on Thanksgiving Day at Walmart and Target

Here's the scoop on the special hours and the kind of specials you can expect to see.

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 Thanksgiving Day.

Walmart announced that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on that 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.

But its not alone. Target and Best Buy are planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.

Target's deals begin an hour later, at 9 p.m. According to an ad leaked online, the best deals will be for a Nook, TVs, a Nikon camera and an XBOX 360 Kinect bundle.

At Best Buy, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and a Samsung laptop bundle.

Walmart will offer its biggest deals from 10-11 p.m. Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items at low prices—an iPad, a TV and a Blu-Ray player—and if the store runs out, you can still buy them but must register for them online by midnight and they'll be delivered to your local store.

According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have "doorbuster" sales Thursday night or at midnight Friday, including Kohl's. 

For the early morning traditionalists, several stores open at 4 a.m. with special sales. If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages.
