When Does the Wheaton Target Open for Black Friday?

Find out when Target and other stores at the Wheaton mall will open for the biggest shopping day of the year.

Target in Westfield Wheaton is opening at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. This is the earliest that the nationwide chain has ever opened its stores for Black Friday shopping.

Around the country, some Target employees and their family members are protesting the "Thanksgiving Creep" and have started petitions online, asking the store to return to a Friday morning opening time. 

The rest of the mall stores in Westfield Wheaton will be opening at midnight. This is the second year that Westfield has scheduled a midnight opening. In 2010, mall stores opened at 5 a.m.

Tell us: What time will you be starting your Black Friday shopping? (Or are you staying home?) Will you be going to Target on Thanksgiving Day? What do you think about stores' decisions to open at midnight or on Thanksgiving?

Are we really this stupid? Retailers have KILLED Black Friday. Now they have pre-Black Friday, Black Friday, post-Black Friday, and Cyber Monday sales. Newspapers have looked at the Black Friday deals and concluded that they all pretty much suck. Black Friday sales have become the equivalent of going-out-of-business sales at carpet stores. Meaningless. The good news is that we can sleep in on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Disgrundled Can't we observe at lease one holiday at home with family and friends and not at the mall with our charge cards. I've never shopped on Black Friday and never will. My sympathies to those who have to leave their Thanksgiving dinner to go to work. And please don't use the excuse that not everyone celebrates Thanksgiving. It is an American Holiday.
