What stores are open on Friday?
Almost every store is open for the biggest shopping holiday of the year. Some will be closed during Thanksgiving, but on Black Friday, most stores welcome shoppers with massive deals.

Pro tip: To ensure that you’ll be able to checkout with ease, make sure your shipping and payment information is up to date at the retailers you intend to shop. Be aware of how much cash back your credit cards will net for each retailer, or if there are benefits you’d like to use (for instance, some credit cards offer extended warranties for certain products purchased).
