(BEDFORD) - Monday turned into one huge day for the release of Black Friday ads and that includes ads for Walmart, Target and JCPenney.
Late Monday evening, yet another one of the big-time retailers came out as the much anticipated Black Friday ad for Kmart was leaked online, and it's absolutely huge at a whopping 76 pages.
Doors for the Black Friday sale will officially open at Kmart on Thanksgiving Day at 8 p.m. The big retailer is attempting to get at least an hour jump on some stores, but there are others which have already announced earlier times.
This year, Kmart is not going to kick customers out for random hours while they close their doors and set things back up again. There are a couple of random dead zones including 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday and then 3 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday, where there are not doorbusters or anything, but the stores will still be open.
Kmart is bringing it all to the front this year for Black Friday and there will be tons of great deals to be had, but you'd better get there early. Kmart also offers free layaway.
Walmart certainly wasn't going to be left in the dust this Thanksgiving.
The world's largest retailer announced Tuesday that it will begin its in-store Black Friday sales at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, two hours earlier than last year.
In addition, Walmart.com will begin offering Black Friday sales on a limited number of items Thursday morning - likely before the turkey is even in the oven.
The announcement comes as a growing list of retailers - from Best Buy to Toys R Us, and most recently Target - said they will push their Black Friday initiatives to Thursday.
The giant retailer will bring back its one-hour guarantee during events at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, followed by an 8 a.m. event on Black Friday. If customers are in a designated line within an hour of one of these sales' kickoffs, they are guaranteed to receive an item at a certain price either that night or before Christmas.
The stores will integrate wristbands so shoppers can browse the store while waiting for the events to begin.
