Wal-Mart will open to Black Friday shoppers earlier than ever before.
The chain will open stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening. Shoppers want earlier openings, Walmart U.S. Chief Merchandising and Marketing Officer Duncan Mac Naughton told the Chicago Tribune.
"'We got customer feedback that says I like to shop earlier so I can go to bed earlier,'" Naughton said.
Target, Best Buy, Macy's and Kohl's all opened at midnight last year. Best Buy Co Inc, Macy's and Kohl's all plan to open at midnight again, according to the Tribune. Target has not announced its opening time yet.
The nearest Wal-Mart is located at 2189 75th St. in Darien.
