13 Thanksgiving and Black Friday Shopping Deals in Washington

For those of you who don't mind crowds.

You’re going to have to take your Thanksgiving dinner to go this year if you want to make it to the best of the Black Friday deals. Last year, Target, Sears, Kohl’s, and Macy’s all opened their doors at 8 PM on Thanksgiving Day. While it was already ridiculous to start Black Friday sales on a Thursday, this year, the same four stores have announced their deals will debut at 6 PM.

It’s a good thing you weren’t planning on eating second helpings, right?

To give yourself time to plan and prepare, we’ve rounded up the best (and the earliest) doorbuster deals for Black Friday—er, Thursday.
