Research to Familiarize Yourself With Deals and Store Hours

"I'm seeing two specific trends this holiday season: some stores are opening at 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving (Thursday night,) and staying open all night to get a jump on Black Friday. And other stores are opening early on Black Friday. Either way, if you want to hit the stores, use this to your advantage by knowing which stores open when." —Peter Shankman, digital branding and social media expert
