I have never, and will never, shop on Black Friday. The past few years my wife has tried convince me, but there is no way I'm camping outside a store or fighting a crowd at 6am on Friday morning, or midnight, or leaving Thanksgiving early to get a deal at 6pm on Thursday.

Even if I refuse, there are enough people who fight for discounts that stores continue to open for special Black Friday hours.

Here's a brief list of some local stores that will be open Thanksgiving/Black Friday:

Barnes & Noble: stores will open at 8am and close at 10pm

Bed Bath & Beyond: stores open at 6am on Black Friday and close regular time

Best Buy: stores open at 5pm on Thanksgiving through 1am on Black Friday. and reopen again at 8am
