Video: Walmart Plans To Offer Black Friday Discounts On Thanksgiving Day

LAKEWOOD-Walmart shoppers will get an early jump on those holiday discounts both online and in-person. 

The retail giant says they will be open on Thanksgiving day with the savings going into effect that day.

For online shoppers, the store’s website will offer deals starting at 12:00 am on Thanksgiving morning.

In preparation for the frenzy, store employees will hand out color coded maps to help keep shoppers from getting too frazzled while searching for bargains.

Target and Toys “R” Us will also open early for people who’d rather shop than eat.


According to consultant group PWC found that almost 60 percent of people surveyed wanted to shop on the holiday.

That number is up considerably from last year.
