Macy's to Open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving
The Black Friday fight is on with the announcement Tuesday that Macy's will open stores at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving, two hours earlier than last year. Macy's is the first major retailer to announce store hours for the Black Friday weekend, often seen as the kickoff to the holiday shopping season. Last year marked the first time the department store opened its doors at 8 p.m., after opening at midnight in the several years before. The company said the earlier opening is "in response to the significant, sustained customer interest in last year's opening on Thanksgiving."
