Thanksgiving is quickly becoming the new Black Friday in the United States, as more and more national retail chains are deciding to open their doors early, on Thanksgiving Day instead of the traditional Friday after Thanksgiving opening.

Many retailers have cited the particularly short shopping period this year between Thanksgiving and Christmas for opening early, since Thanksgiving does not arrive until November 28th.

NewsChannel 9 has compiled a list of the largest U.S. retail chains who have announced they will open early in 2013, on Thanksgiving Day, for those who are seeking a jump start to their holiday shopping.

Walmart is open 24hrs on Thanksgiving Day, however, their doorbuster deals begin at 6 p.m. Walgreens is also open 24hrs on Thanksgiving Day.

I for one won't be shopping at any of these stores at any time soon. I know for a fact that any special prices there are limited quantity of these specials. If you want a tablet there are only 20-50 of them. If you are the 15th person in line chances of getting one are very, very slim. I'll be doing my shopping on Saturday, when all the A**H****s shoppers are home and the real shoppers are out looking for real deals.
