NerdWallet is here to help you win Black Friday, while leaving your budget intact. We spend the time, you save the money. Visit regularly for tips and announcements about the best holiday deals from your favorite retailers. Black Friday is Nov. 24.

Time is of the essence on Black Friday because inventory is limited, and deals go quickly. To ensure you get in line before everything is picked over, we compiled a list of Black Friday store hours at major retailers.

But fair warning — you may have to cut your turkey dinner short because some big box chains will be opening on Thanksgiving Day.
