The biggest Black Friday sale of the year, at Walmart, will start at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, joining the line of stores planning an earlier Black Friday opening this year.
This announcement means for the best deals you will have to line up at noon or 1 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, eating turkey either for breakfast, or while waiting in line.
However, the store plans to stagger the sale into three separate events, with other doorbusters starting at 8 p.m. and still more Friday morning at 8 a.m.
And for the second year in a row, Walmart will have a "1 Hour in-stock Guarantee" on certain items, meaning you won't have to fight 200 people, and knock down Grandma, just to get one of 3 waffle irons in stock.
