ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - The continued movement of Black Friday sales to Thanksgiving night has grabbed another local retailer.
Ashwaubenon-based Shopko stores will open Thursday November 28 from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., then reopen at 8 p.m. and remain open until 11 p.m. Friday.
Previously, Shopko stores opened during the day on Thanksgiving, but closed early.
"Our customers have told us they are pressed for time and want flexible and convenient options for their holiday shopping,” interim CEO and chief operating officer Mike Bettinga said in a news release.
Company leaders say they plan to offer hundreds of special “door buster” prices Thursday night, and again at 5 a.m. Friday for the traditional start to the holiday shopping season.
Many other retailers, like Kohl's, Younkers, and Boston Stores have announced they plan to open on Thanksgiving night.
Shopko Hometown stores will have slightly different hours. They will open on Thanksgiving Day from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. They will close, and then open at 5 a.m. for Black Friday and stay open until 9 p.m.
Meantime, Shopko.com will offer special Black Friday specials beginning Wednesday November 27 at 1 a.m. Those offers will be good through Friday November 29.
