Sears and Kmart will kick off their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving

Hours: Store hours still haven't been posted for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.

Stores are unveiling their plans for the most critical days of the holiday shopping season.

Hours: JC Penny has not yet announced its store hours, but deals will last November 23-Dec. 24. "The cover of the Best Buy Black Friday 2017 ad also features a $749.99 65" Samsung UN65MU6070FXZA 4K UHD Smart TV and a $599.99 60" Sony KD60X690E 4K UHD Smart TV. This year, the deals become available at 6 p.m., the kickoff time Walmart used last year.

However, store openings are optional on Thanksgiving - so some retailers may not be open. Instead, doors will open at 7:45 a.m. on Friday. There's one big benefit to Best Buy's offerings, though: According to its Black Friday ad, many of these deals will be available both in stores and online on Thanksgiving day.

Walmart hopes to tempt shoppers with online deals before Black Friday.

Sears says most of its stores will be open from 6 p.m.to midnight on Thanksgiving, though some will be closed for the holiday.

On Black Friday, the Staten Island Mall will open at 6 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. All stores will reopen at 5 a.m. on Black Friday.

Instead, Walmart will be color-coding its departments, such as electronics, toys, and apparel, on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, to make it easier for shoppers to find sale items.
