Black Friday sales have already begun online, but there are also deals to be had in-store today. Stores including Best Buy, Target, and Walmart will be open for Black Friday, and while some stores will open following their regular hours, others will open their doors early—some as early as 5 a.m.
Black Friday will likely look a little different at stores today, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the stores will probably be busy, this Black Friday might not see the classic doorbuster rush.
Stores will likely have implemented health and safety guidelines, such as limited capacities, social distancing, and mask requirements. Some guidelines may be more restrictive depending on the store or area, so make sure you’re aware of the guidelines before heading out.

Newsweek has rounded up the best online deals at stores like Walmart, Lowe’s, Kohl’s, Target, and more—there are tonnes of discounts to be had from the comfort of your couch.
