Black Friday 2012 Store Opening Times to Plan Your Shopping Attack

Three more days before Black Friday 2012 and everyone is busy doing their shopping list of items. However, don’t expect to get those doorbuster deals if you are not planning your shopping attack on Black Friday.

Research the deals you are targeting on Black Friday. With the leaked ad scans available on the internet, you can compare prices from various retailers offering the same product.

As the saying goes ‘the early bird catches the worm’, you need to be early and be there before stores open in order to get those deals ahead of others. Just like in previous Black Fridays, most stores will open on Thanksgiving Day so you can get a massive jump on shopping.

Therefore, as soon as the dishes were washed up on Thanksgiving Day, head on to your favorite stores to get those bargain deals. Take note of their opening times and be there early.
