More and more stores are staying closed on Thanksgiving and Black Friday

CT BBB: Shop carefully for best 'Black Friday' deals These Black Friday shopping tips will come in handy | The Telegraph

So you might as well start planning your shopping strategy right now.

Expect most of the high-end doorbusters on Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, but there are some steals available NOW. 2017 will be no exception. Similarly, helpful advice can be found by looking around online for directions to the better online deals, which often come within a respectable distance of the actual deals offered in brick-and-mortar storefronts.

"For some retailers such as Kohl's or Amazon, Black Friday starts the Monday of Thanksgiving week, so it's really just creeping earlier and earlier", Vincent said. There is no reason to stand in line out in the cold and risk life and limb to get a hold of the last $500 TV - the same deal is probably available somewhere online. And of course texts, tweets, and social media posts are an easy way to share Black Friday shopping intel with your friends.

Eager shoppers have no need to worry about missing out on better deals later in the sales period; Currys PC World, one of the brands to jumpstart the bargain bonanza, say the deals they have released already won't drop any further on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Some of us wait all year for the Black Friday shopping season, our heads filled with the promise of scoring the best price of the year on a new TV, tablet, printer, or high-tech gadget.

They have hundreds of pounds off Sony Bravia, Samsung, LG OLED and more - as well as other offers and promotions. Overall, online sales made up about 8 percent of the $4.8 trillion in US retail sales a year ago. But don't let all the Black Friday hype fool you.

Tech and gaming fans were early birds, with 57 per cent of all deals purchased between 12am - 4.30am being video games consoles, games and tablets.

To get the deals and top products out to stores and customers' homes, Argos's 11 distribution centres covering more than five million square feet of floor space will have around 5,000 warehouse workers, supported by 3,000 Fast Track drivers, using 950 delivery vans based at local stores.

"Instead of being open the entire day, many stores will open only certain hours", said Ana Serafin Smith, spokeswoman for the National Retail Federation.
