The hot deals include deals on televisions and toys. Free coffee and Christmas cookies will be available to the fearless souls who show up - though most of Walmart's Black Friday deals will come online the evening before, at 10 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

Walmart is open all day Thanksgiving and will kick off its Black Friday deals on Thursday at 6 p.m. local time -two hours earlier than previous year. Update, Nov. 8: Adds corrected information about Walmart's store hours on Nov. 21 and 22. Once the party ends, in-store events get underway with new tools to make it easier to shop.

Black Friday - the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday - traditionally marks the start of the holiday shopping season.

The holidays come early this year at Walmart.

Earlier this month, Target revealed some of its Black Friday promotions, including roving associates with portable checkout scanners who can help customers skip long checkout lines.

Walmart has a quartet of additional HP laptops if you don't want the most bare-bones of specs. Some estimates suggest spending could reach $1 trillion for the first time.

Black Friday is a few weeks away and while shoppers prepare their pockets for the multitude of sales, big retailers have already left the starting block in their preparations. It also promises the lowest price on popular video games such as Madden 19, Destiny 2, National Basketball Association 2K19, and FIFA 19.

Finally, at 6 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, the in-store shopping will begin. Stores will open again on Friday morning at 7 a.m.
