Last week, Wal-Mart announced they were starting their Black Friday sale at 10:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving because, quote, "our customers told us they would rather stay up late to shop than get up early." Now Toys "R" Us says they’re going to follow Wal-Mart’s lead and open their stores at 9:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving.

As of this post, they are the only two major retailers getting a jump on your wallet and not waiting until at least midnight Friday when others such as Target, Best Buy, and Bealls will be joining the fray.  Cielo Vista and Sunland Park Malls will open at 4 a.m., but many individual stores in the mall will be open at midnight. Follow this link for a detailed list of Black Friday shopping hours via  the El Paso Times staff
