  • At Amazon, it’s Black Friday already. Next stop, complete holiday domination

Target announced its Thanksgiving and Black Friday hours Thursday, along with a list of enticing deals and a "skip-the-line" checkout experience. Most customers are accustomed to the hassle of long line-ups on Black Friday.

November is here-as are early deals from Walmart to kick off the holiday shopping season.

In a press release Thursday, the retailer announced they will be opening at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day and will remain open until 1 a.m. Their products take pride of place during Prime Day - the annual sales event for Prime subscribers - and often return at the same price over the Black Friday weekend.

The hot deals include deals on televisions and toys. For the record, 2018's Black Friday is still three weeks away-on November 23. It remains to be seen whether the chain of stores will do the same this year, but expect to see deals that are just as good as-or even better than-last year's.

As the last few discounted bags of Halloween candy are still being scanned in Target's checkout lanes, the retailer has unveiled its plans for holiday shopping.
