Where to Find the Best Black Friday Deals Locally

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday rule the shopping roost after Thanksgiving.

If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: Area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year—starting on Thanksgiving Day!

Last week, Wal-Mart announced that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22, and offer holiday doorbusters while supplies last. These include deals on TVs, iPads, an electric scooter for $79 and a steam mop for $39. (There's a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Century Drive in West Mifflin Borough.)

Not to be outdone, Target—you can find one on Lebanon Church Road in West Mifflin—and Best Buy—on Route 51 in West Mifflin (by Century III Mall)—are also planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.

Target's deals begin at 9 p.m. on Thursday, According to an advertisement leaked online, the best deals will be for TVs, a NOOK, a Nikon camera and an Xbox 360 Kinect bundle.

At Best Buy, doors open at midnight on Friday. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and Samsung laptop bundles.

Wal-Mart will offer its biggest deals from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items—an iPad, a TV and a Blu-ray player—at low prices. If the store runs out of those items, you can still buy them at discounted prices, but you must register for them online by midnight and have them delivered to your local store.

According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have doorbuster sales on Thursday night or at midnight on Friday, including Kohl's (Mountainview Drive, West Mifflin).

For the early morning traditionalists, some stores will open at 4 a.m. with special sales. If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages.

No Black Friday shopping for me. I am still trying to recuperate from all I ate for dinner that I can hardly move. LOL
