Black Friday Shopping Guide
Hours: Kmart will open at 8 p.m. on Thursday night, close at 3 a.m., then reopen at 5 a.m. As always, local laws might prohibit a Thanksgiving Day opening. Some Massachusetts residents, for instance, won't be able to get in the door until midnight.
Every retailer's Black Friday ad seems to have a super-cheap TV deal on the front page as a way of attracting customers. On price alone, Kmart wins this battle with an $88 Seiki TV on the front of its circular, but note that it's only 24 inches. A better bet might be the 50-inch Proscan LCD TV for just $288, which it says is marked down from $699.99. As you might expect, quantities are limited for both items, so if you're not in line on Thursday night, you're probably out of luck.
