When does Thanksgiving end and Black Friday begin? It will be a little harder to tell this year, as several big box stores — including those in Bloomfield — open their doors at midnight on the biggest shopping day of the year.
Macy's, Kohl's, Target and Best Buy will open earlier than ever before. Last year, stores opened at 4 a.m.
Kristy Welker, a spokesperson for Target, said they are changing their hours this year for customer convenience.
"Every holiday at Target is different," Welker said. "We work hard to ensure the entire experience delivers on what our guests want and need. We have heard from our guests that they want Target to be their first stop for their Black Friday shopping. By opening at midnight, we are making it easier than ever for our guests to shop the great assortment we offer, when they want to shop."
While all Best Buy stores will open at midnight on Black Friday, select stores will kick-off the holiday shopping season Thursday night with an outdoor screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. The movie will start around 9 p.m., with giveaways and refreshments preceding it at 8 p.m.
Participating Best Buy locations are stores in Auburn Hills, Novi, Twelve Oaks, Roseville and Westland.
