Best Buy released its Black Friday 2013 ad this week, touting its holiday sales and deals as a “A Better Way to Black Friday.”
The electronics retailer said that the release of its Black Friday advertisement is just the beginning of a series of offers created for holiday shoppers to purchase when and where they want on Thanksgiving, Black Friday and throughout the holidays. The specials savings begin with weekly deals online and in-store, followed by special shopping events for My Best Buy members and online-only deals at BestBuy.com.
For shoppers who wish to save on Black Friday, there will be three waves of savings: doorbuster deals begin at 6 P.M. on Thanksgiving, mystery doorbusters will be available at midnight and even more doorbusters begin at 10 A.M Black Friday morning. BestBuy.com will begin its Cyber Week deals immediately following Black Friday.
Best Buy Black Friday 2013 Store Hours:
More than 1,000 Best Buy stores in 47 states will open at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving evening and will remain open until 10 p.m. local time on Friday, Nov. 29.
That company said in a release that there "is no doubt that the decision to open earlier than last year on Thanksgiving affects Best Buy, but much of the internal feedback we have gotten so far reflects our collective desire to serve customers and have a successful holiday. All affected hourly store employees will, of course, receive holiday pay."
Because of laws in Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, stores in those states will not open until Black Friday. Our five stores in Maine will open at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 29. Our 27 stores in Massachusetts and our Rhode Island store will open at 1 a.m. on Nov. 29. Our three Best Buy stores in Puerto Rico will also open at 12:01 a.m. on Nov. 29.
A small number of additional locations across the U.S. may have varied hours because of county or municipal laws. Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores located in shopping malls may have their hours adjusted based on the operating hours of the mall. Best Buy Mobile stores not located in malls will open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
