Are you in line for those Black Friday sales yet?

This Black Friday is proving to be different than any other.  With stores opening on Thanksgiving to get a jump on Black Friday sales, planning your shopping has gotten even more complicated!  Do you skip dessert to get in line for the deals at Target (that opens at Midnight)?  Or do you start camping out right this very minute (yes, before your turkey is even cooked!)?  Well, I've got news for you, you're too late, unless you are reading this post from a tent camped in front of your local Target.  Yes, last night I saw people already camping in tents in front of our Super Target.  (I apologize for the picture above - I was trying to be covert about taking a picture!).

What Black Friday sales will or won't you be hitting this year? 

Below is a list compiled by CouponSherpa.com to give you the inside scoop on the sales this year.

Kmart has taken the lead this year, opening at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving Day. Toys R Us pulls into second place with a start time of 9 p.m., one hour earlier than 2010. Walmart takes third, opening at 10 p.m. on Turkey Day.

Doesn't anybody "Respect the Bird" anymore?

For those willing to brave crowds on a turkey-filled stomach or rise well before dawn, here is a list of opening hours for 15 major merchants, along with a special deal each is offering. Keep in mind that hours are subject to change and some states don't allow stores to open on Thanksgiving Day.
