For the first time in the history of the National Retail Federation's annual holiday spending survey, online is expected to be the most popular shopping destination with 59 percent of 7,349 consumers surveyed indicating they would shop online.

Opens: 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

Now, he says, there's really no such thing anymore. "It's not all online".

According to Lonny Powell of Alliance Retirement Solutions, shoppers spent more than $650 billion last year on the holidays and it's expected that they will spend more this year. Almost 63 percent of consumer spending is forecasted for gifts while 23 percent will be on food, decorations and cards with 15 percent slated for buyers splurging on themselves.

Shoppers will receive 25 percent off all full price items, both in-store and online, in the store's Black Friday pre-sale.

The Agana Shopping Center will open an hour earlier at 9 a.m. and some stores will have up to 75 percent off, said Pauline Yanson, promotions coordinator for the center.

Opens: 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving until 11 p.m. Friday.

Target Corp. and others are aggressively advertising holiday specials online and in stores to get a jump on the spending spree that remains a key contributor to merchants' financial health.

Outdoor retailer REI Co-op also will close its 151 stores for the third consecutive year on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, a span in which it urges its customers and 12,000 employees to "opt outside". J.C. Penney and Kohl's are advertising "Cyber Monday" or "Cyber Week" sales both online and in-store November 25-29 while Dick's Sporting Goods is running its "Cyber Week" sale November 26-Dec. 2. The department store's best deals include 40 percent off women's boots, 30 percent off handbags created by the retailer, 50 percent off cold-weather accessories and 60 percent off men's outerwear. And on Friday, Nov. 24, get $1 cozy socks.

Anthony Quichocho, assistant store manager of Home Depot, said its Black Friday sale is always a big event.

"It's one stop gift shopping", Pasion said.

"We are starting to see retailers get their window displays ready early". "It's really like Black November".

Pro-Tip: According to Wallethub, Kohl's will offer some of the steepest discounts of any major retailer this Black Friday. You can find the app in the app store with searching for just for "i4u".

"Buy Nothing Day is where you challenge yourself, your family and friends to switch off from shopping and tune into life", says the UK Buy Nothing Day website.

Like previous years, Jaroszewicz said he expects Black Friday to be the third most trafficked day of the holiday season, behind the Saturday before Christmas (Dec. 16) and the Friday immediately before (Dec. 22).

Countryside Gardens handed out 2,500 fliers at the Bodacious Bazaar and expects to be busy right before Thanksgiving selling poinsettias and Christmas trees, she said.

This year's holiday season will go down as a watershed moment for online shopping.

"We have a lot of faithful shop local people", Llaneza said. The JCPenney Black Friday deals are across a wide range of products including toys, apparel, appliances, and electronics.

"The assumption is people need to buy things like decorations before the stores start decorating", Atkison said.

"Buy Nothing Day isn't about changing your lifestyle for just one day - we want it to be a lasting relationship or maybe a life changing experience". Reopens Friday from 5 10 p.m.

When stores open on Thanksgiving Day, early shoppers will get an envelope containing a coupon worth $10 off $10, $100 off $100 or $500 off $500 or more purchase, while supplies last.

"So far, it's going great", Abicht said. Gift cards regularly top consumers' wish lists. Eligible shoppers must make 10 purchases between November 13 and December 17 using the LoveVa app.
