It won't be hard to find a place to shop on Thanksgiving night.

Target has announced that it will open at 9 p.m. Thursday so shoppers can get a head start on Black Friday deals.

“We thought long and hard about when the right opening time would be,” Target executive Kathee Tesija said in an Associated Press report.

Walmart, the nation's largest retailer, already had announced that it will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

Last year Target moved their opening time to midnight. I reluctantly went. But I will NOT go at 9 PM. There has always been a sense of fun waiting for the stores to open, but getting in line for a 9 PM opening means getting in line at what time??? I will be home, thank you very much!
