Black Friday 2017: When will stores open?

Best Buy released its Black Friday deals on November 8 and is making many of them - including discounts on Apple Watches and iPads - available early from now until Saturday, November 11.

Hours: JC Penny has not yet announced its store hours, but deals will last November 23-Dec. 24.

The Walmart Black Friday 2017 hours start on Thanksgiving Day. And while some retailers like Walmart have been open on Thanksgiving for decades, more are following suit to pursue consumers who want to start browsing and spending in between the turkey and pumpkin pie.
