I'm sure the executives of Toys R Us, Kohl's and Walmart along with other companies will not be working this day and will be enjoying their Thanksgiving dinner.

It's November, which means Black Friday month is here. Its stores will then reopen at 6 a.m. local time on Friday until 10 p.m., 11 p.m. or midnight.

Still, by some estimates the number of shoppers who went online to make purchases previous year was larger than the number who went to stores and bought items in person.

Like other retailers, Target is trying to figure out what makes sense for its customers. A year ago more people shopped online than in store during the Black Friday sales period, according to the National Retail Federation.

The online auction site is offering steep discounts on items that are the exact same as or similar to items featured in Black Friday circulars by big retailers.

In an unsurprising embrace of Black Friday enthusiasm, Walmart and Amazon are already rolling out holiday deals. Also, store employees will hand out color-coded maps to help shoppers navigate through large crowds.

This weekend, score early Black Friday sales at Best Buy which include discounts on Horizon Zero Dawn (now $20),Uncharted: The Lost Legacy(now $20), andLogitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel (now $199.99).

A very good deal available at Best Buy is a 50-inch LED 216op Smart 4K Ultra HD Roku TV for only 179.99$. Newegg.ca, a Canadian e-retailer, is making its presence known and plans to offer even better savings on electronics this November - check them out at Newegg.ca/BlackNovember.
