When is the exact date of Black Friday?

The date of Black Friday changes each year. This year, Black Friday lands on Friday, November 29.

But like many other retail holidays, Black “Friday” really starts a few days, or even earlier at some stores, before the real event. The high anticipation for deals is enough to make retailers launch their sales early.

That’s probably better for shoppers anyway. It means they have extra time to shop the countless online sales at their leisure, rather than try to cram all their shopping into one hectic day.

What time does Black Friday start?

Here’s when Black Friday starts at various retailers. While a handful of stores start their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving Day, there are also many that are not open on the holiday.

How long do Black Friday sales last?

Again, don’t be fooled by the name that suggests it’s a single day. Black Friday sales usually last at least a few days, whether they start early or continue on until Cyber Monday.
