Black Friday shoppers will be happy to know that WalMart opens at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day to deliver all its Black Friday deals in-store. You can also find deals online but to get them in store that begins at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, 2017.

Let’s say you just need milk and bread and don’t want to hassle with Black Friday sales. Many Walmart stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day 2017 for a portion of the day — 24 hour stores, for instance, rarely close but for Christmas. But hours will be limited so you can’t count on getting much shopping done.
