Kohl's announced today that they will open their stores at 8pm Thanksgiving Night. Kohl's opened at midnight last year but with JCPenney and Macy's opening at 8pm this year, it was pretty much a given that Kohl's would also open early.
According to their press release, "Kohls will remain open for 28 straight hours until midnight Saturday. Shopping over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend has become a much-anticipated tradition enjoyed with friends and family,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief customer officer. “As many customers are eager to get a jumpstart on their shopping, we are opening our stores at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day as a convenience to our customers who want to make Kohl’s their first stop.”
