Toys R Us joins growing list of stores with extended Thanksgiving Day shopping

Posted: Updated:

WAYNE, NJ - Avid shoppers may be planning to eat their turkey a few hours earlier than usual on Thanksgiving day.

Another major retailer has announced plans for extended hours on the holiday.  Toys"R"US announced on Wednesday that it's stores nationwide will open at 5:00 P.M. on the day before Black Friday.

Last year, the toy retailer opened it's doors at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, and company officials said the response from consumers was overwhelmingly positive.

Earlier this week, the operators of Sears and Kmart stores announced extra holiday shopping hours.

Kmart plans a 41-hour shopping blitz from 6:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning through 10:00 p.m. on Black Friday.

Sears isn't far behind with it's own turkey day all-nighter. Doors open at 8:00 p.m. and don't close until 10:00 p.m. Friday.

Macy's will open its doors at 8:00 p.m. on the holiday for the first time in 155 years. Kohl's and J.C. Penney will also open at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
