Best Buy is opening at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, citing high demand from last year's shoppers to get a head start on Black Friday.
"Last year, millions of people made it clear that they wanted to shop on Thanksgiving evening," Best Buy said in its announcement.
More than 1,000 Best Buy stores in 47 states will open at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving evening, and remain open until 10 p.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 29.
All affected hourly store employees will receive holiday pay.
Stores in Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island will not open on Thanksgiving, due to state laws, but doors will open at 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday.
