This year, many retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, and Macy's will be open on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, kicking off their shopping season in full force.
However, Wal-Mart is the eliminating the word “Thursday” from its agenda and is instead focusing on the debut of its prime shopping season, Yahoo Finance reports.
....Black Friday is our day - our Super Bowl," declared Wal-Mart's US president, Bill Simon. "We’re excited to give our customers an incredible Black Friday with shopping hours that will allow them to take advantage of great prices on Thanksgiving night and all weekend long."
