Target and Toys R Us stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day

Target and Toys R Us stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day

For the first time ever, more shoppers will look for gifts online than in stores this holiday season, according to a survey from the National Retail Federation.

For Black Friday 2017, Target will be open from 6 p.m.to midnight on Thanksgiving Day, then re-open on Friday at 6 a.m.

Target is also offering early access to some Black Friday deals on Monday, Nov. 6, only, including sales on board games, vehicle seats and more. Penney stores will stay open until normal closing hours on Friday, so they'll be open 32 hours at most locations.

That's different from past year when it kept the stores open straight through the night. Best Buy has not yet said when it will open its stores on Thanksgiving, but it has done so at 5 p.m.in recent years. The Mall of America and Burnsville Center have gone further and will not open at all on Thanksgiving for the second year in a row.

For instance, at Harbor Freight Tools, the 17-foot Type 1A Multi-Task Ladder was on sale for $115 during Black Friday 2015.

Target also announced on Monday that shoppers can get early access to Black Friday deals in stores and online for one day - Monday, November 6.
