Shopping on Thanksgiving Day in South Florida is easier to do then you may think – especially if you want to get a jump on deals for Black Friday, one of the busiest days of the year because so many retailers cut prices.

For early Black Friday deals, Walmart will open its doors to customers at 10 p.m. at stores across Broward, Palm Beach and Orange counties.

If you need more time to finish your holiday meal or spend time with relatives and friends, stores like Macy’s, Target, Toys R Us and Kohl’s will open starting at midnight.

Best bet: Check with your favorite retailer and ask about holiday store hours, new apps and other ways to bag upcoming bargains.
