Clothing and apparel retailer Belk will open its stores at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving this year. They will remain open until 1 a.m., before re-opening on Black Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m, according to BlackFriday.com.
The company will offer a number of Black Friday deals and promotions, including $10 off your first purchase of $50 or more and three-for-one deals on some clothing items and brands, including all Kim Rogers items and men’s casual and dress pants. Belk will also be giving away $1,000 to one customer in each of its stores.
The holiday shopping season, which traditionally runs from the day after Thanksgiving through most of December, is set to begin in earnest this year on November 24, when Black Friday falls this year.
While some retailers refuse to operate on Thanksgiving, others are pushing their opening times earlier and earlier in an attempt to gain an edge in a competitive retail market.
