Now that Santa is coming to town, it's time to get the stores decked with the Christmas spirit just in time for black Friday. And many stores will be opening earlier this year. Thanksgiving isn’t even over yet, but we're already thinking about Christmas. And stores say they're ready for customers. “We are in the big Christmas spirit.” The Christmas rush officially begins the day after thanksgiving with black Friday steals and deals that have people rushing to the stores. But this year many stores are planning to open their doors even earlier, some kicking off the shopping sprees on thanksgiving day. “We will be opening at a very competitive and special time this year.” Target hasn't officially announced the time it will open but a little birdie told us they plan on opening at 9 p.m. on thanks giving day. Shoppers say they plan on taking advantage. And they're decking the halls over at Wal-mart. Thier deals will begin 8 pm thanksgiving day. “Theyre going to start earlier and going on throughout the day so yes. we're starting thanksgiving day.” Customers say if the doors are open, they will come.
