Years ago, I remember waiting in line with my aunt, sister and cousins outside a New Jersey department store on Black Friday.

We huddled together in the pre-dawn cold with our hot chocolates, and excitedly waited for novelty snow globes and early bird coupons.

Black Friday traditionally ushers in the holiday shopping season. But some retailers have begun offering deals sooner.

What began as an early-morning activity the day after Thanksgiving has turned into an after-dinner — and sometimes earlier — family shopping activity on Turkey Day.

Have the itch to hit the mall before the clock strikes midnight, too?

Whether you want to get a jump on your gift list or just venture out to the stores in between football and turkey dinner, these 11 stores will be open on Thanksgiving.

Please note, some of these hours are based on previous years and not yet confirmed. We will update the list as information becomes available. Also, some hours vary by location; check with your local store.
