Many U.S. and Canadian Apple Retail Stores Opening Early for Black Friday Sales

Many U.S. and Canadian Apple Retail Stores will be opening early on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the traditional start of the holiday shopping season. Apple had planned to open some stores on Thanksgiving day itself, but CEO Tim Cook cancelled that plan because he wanted employees to be with their families on the holiday.

Southpoint
Shoppers interested in going to Apple Stores as early as possible, on the only day of the year that Apple offers sale prices on its merchandise, should check Apple's Retail Store Locations page where special holiday hours are posted on each store's page. Some locations will be opening as early as 6AM.

Some retail stores in other countries have pop-ups as well, as many countries will see extended holiday hours as we move deeper into the holiday season.

In past years, Apple has offered discounts on iPads, iPods and some Mac models on Black Friday.

I wish they'd stop this Black Friday crap. It's gotten way out of hand, and it NEVER use to be like this.

Good for him. I refuse to go Christmas shopping on Thanksgiving in a retail store. There is more important things to life than shopping.
