Are you ready for the biggest shopping day of the year? Costco’s Black Friday 2018 ad has leaked, and there are some great deals you might want to take advantage of. Here’s everything you need to know about planning your holiday shopping trip to the warehouse club, including when Costco opens on Black Friday and the best deals you’ll find in-store and online.
Costco will open at 9 a.m. on Black Friday
You won’t need to wake up at the crack of dawn to make Costco’s Black Friday opening. The store will open at 9 a.m. on November 23.
Most Costco stores normally open their doors at 10 a.m., so you will be able to start your spending spree an hour earlier on Black Friday. However, even with the earlier opening time, Costco still opens later on Black Friday than many other retailers.
Stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, GameStop, Home Depot, Macy’s, Kmart, and Target will welcome shoppers at 6 a.m., according to DealNews. Sears, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops will open at 5 a.m., meaning you’ll need to shake-off your turkey-induced sleepiness even earlier if you hope to snag the best doorbuster deals.
Costco is closed on Thanksgiving
Of course, committed bargain-hunters know that Black Friday sales don’t always start on Black Friday. Many major chains will also open on Thanksgiving, often closing for a few hours overnight before opening again on Friday morning.
GameStop, Kmart, Michaels, Old Navy, Sears, Target, and Ulta are among the places where you can shop on Thanksgiving Day. But Costco is one of dozens of major chains bucking the turkey day shopping trend. All Costco stores are closed on Thanksgiving Day, one of seven holidays for the store and its staff.
