Walmart and Target were closed on Thanksgiving Day, so what are the stores’ hours for Black Friday? Whether you’re wanting to shop in person after the big holiday or you’re wanting to get an order delivered to your home, you’ll want to know about specials and hours. The chains are indeed going to be open for Black Friday, but not as early as they have in the past.
Walmart Stores Are Opening on Black Friday at 5 AM
Although Walmart is closed on Thanksgiving, Walmart stores are reopening bright and early on Friday, November 26, at 5 a.m. local time, Walmart shared in a press statement.
At one point in the past, Walmart had started opening its stores for Black Friday on Thanksgiving night. But that has changed since the pandemic, and stores are now opening early on Black Friday morning instead.
For the store hours near you today, see the store finder, as hours may vary by location.
Walmart has had three sets of Black Friday specials, with two sets of specials leading up to November 26. “Event 2” of their Black Friday specials launched online on November 10. “Event 3” of their Black Friday specials began online on November 22, with in-store savings beginning November 26 at 5 a.m.

So, no matter when or how customers want to shop, they can benefit from huge savings for every item on their lists, all season long at Walmart.”
