While some major retailers planned to open their doors as early as 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, plenty of deals will still await shoppers Friday at Walmart, Target, Best Buy and elsewhere.
With each passing year, it seems Black Friday begins earlier and earlier—6 a.m., then 5 a.m., then 4 a.m. This year, Black Friday actually started on Thanksgiving night. Should you be one of those traditional folks who don't believe in Black Friday shopping until it's actually Black Friday, however, here's what you need to know about shopping opportunities in the northern suburbs. Plenty of Black Friday deals are out there throughout the North Hills and Cranberry. Among them is Nordstrom, which proudly trumpets its longstanding tradition of not putting up Christmas decorations or starting holiday sales until the day after Thanksgiving. A sign in its store windows reads: “We just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time.” The …

Black Friday is oozing off the calendar block into Family Thursday. Stores are hoping to cash in on customer eagerness by opening their doors on Thanksgiving Day. What do you think about that?
If you find yourself in need of some bedazzled jeans on Thanksgiving Day and just can't wait until the weekend, you're in luck this year. Michaels craft stores will be open starting at 4 p.m. that day, and Gap stores will be open until 8. Some people will just be sitting down to their feast around that time, but stores are betting that many shoppers will have eaten their meal and cleared away the dishes by then, and will be happy for a reason to get out of the house. For the stores to be open, though, someone has to drive in to work that day. An employee at a Target store has collected 190,000 signatures from people who say nobody should have to collect shopping carts or stock shelves on Thanksgiving Day. They argue the holiday is for …

Swimsuits, beach towels, and sunscreen are making way for backpacks, lunchboxes, pencils and notebooks. Let's not forget the new fall clothes. As much as I love summer, there is nothing I like more than dressing for fall. Rich colors, heavier fabrics and preppy prints all make me itch to get my hands on the newest fashions. But this year I won't be shopping the new looks for myself. My little girl is heading to preschool this fall, and I am stocking her closet with all the latest trends that any fashionable 3-year-old needs for her very first year of educational instruction. Preschooler, you say? Does a preschooler really need a whole …
