2012 Black Friday Sales Store Opening Times - Wal-Mart, Apple, Target, Best Buy

Complete Roundup of November 23, 2012 Store Opening & Black Friday Sales Hours

By

Updated November 17, 2013
>> NEW 2013 Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day Updates (click these links) << Reports about 2012 Black Friday store opening times and sales hours for retailers like Wal-Mart, Apple, Target, Best Buy and all the biggest U.S. retail chains started making headlines as soon as the 2012 Back-to-School sales were over. With Black Friday accounting for about 40% of annual sales figures, the largest U.S. retail chains and Black Friday sales shoppers were equally eager to shift focus to the biggest shopping day of the calendar year, which will be November 23, 2012.

Which stores are opening at which times on Black Friday in 2012? This is a complete roundup of Black Friday store opening times and sales hours for the biggest U.S. retail chains in the U.S. This list is arranged according to store opening times, with the earliest Black Friday opening times listed first. (For another convenient reference, this 2012 Black Friday Store Openings list is arranged alphabetically as well on the next page.)

Although the 2012 Black Friday store opening times started getting reported in September, many of the store opening times reported were speculative. Only the times that are indicated as “CONFIRMED” are official store opening times, confirmed by representatives of the retail chains. All other Black Friday store opening times that are not confirmed will be updated as soon as official confirmation is received.

Black Friday 2012 included a record number of Thanksgiving Day store openings, which means that Black Friday sales began well before the clock struck midnight to usher in another Black Friday. Use these links to get more Thanksgiving Day and Pre-Black Friday shopping information... This list was last updated on November 22, 2012, and will be updated through Black Friday November 23, 2012, as information is released and official store opening times and store hours announcements are made by Wal-Mart, Apple, Target, Best Buy, and all the biggest U.S. retail store chains.
