Walmart stores will be open all day on Thanksgiving, Nov. 23 — although the company advises checking with your local store for its holiday hours.
At 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, Walmart stores will officially start Black Friday.
For the first time this year, Black Friday shoppers will find color-coded store departments. Walmart explains:
“Key departments — like electronics, toys, home, apparel and hardlines — will be color coded in the Black Friday event circular and on Walmart’s popular store maps, available on the Walmart app starting Nov. 14 and in stores on event night, making it visually easier for customers to navigate to the deals.”
For online shoppers, Black Friday starts at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thanksgiving morning.
