Toys R Us Thanksgiving tradition: 5 pm store openings

Toys R Us Thanksgiving tradition: 5 pm store openings”

Stores will open at 8 a.m. on Black Friday.

NEW YORK (AP) - Target is offering shoppers a breather after holiday shopping on Thanksgiving.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the Wayne-based retailer has opened at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving. PricewaterhouseCoopers estimates that 28% of Thanksgiving Day shoppers this year will do most of their shopping only online, up 10% compared with last year.

Notable November Deals - The company's annual go-to holiday catalog, The Ultimate Guide to Play, features savings on hundreds of the year's hottest toys and brands, such as Imaginext®, Doc McStuffins, Paw Patrol and more.

Increased online promotions and retailers' ever-earlier or extended Black Friday-type doorbuster deals are killing consumers' appetite to shop the day after Thanksgiving, other polls point to the contrary. The company says the exact hours might vary depending on the store.

Macy's says most of it's stores will open on Thanksgiving at 5 p.m. for Black Friday specials. It will reopen 6 a.m. local time on Black Friday.

Since filing for bankruptcy protection in September, however, Toys "R" Us has an additional reason to remain open.

Target is giving its employees a longer break this Black Friday than it has in years past.

For the first time, when customers spend $50 on the day after Thanksgiving, they will receive a coupon for 20 percent off a future shopping trip.
