If you're looking to save some cash this Holiday Season, you better skip your second helping of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving. That's because before the turkey is even chilled in our refrigerators, stores are opening their doors earlier than ever. For many people, the door-buster deals are just too good to pass up. So instead of laying on the couch and watching football as their thanksgiving feasts digest, thousands are standing in line at their favorite retailers.
Here's just a quick rundown of when stores in the Wausau Area will be open:
Walmart - 8 p.m. (they are also offering door-buster deals at 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.)
Target - 9 p.m.
Shopko - 9 p.m.
Best Buy - Midnight
Khol's - Midnight
Wausau Center Mall - Most stores are opening at Midnight (all others will open at 5 a.m.)
Gordmans - 5 a.m.
