A Roundup of Ad Rumors & Store Hours for Black Friday 2012


Black Friday is soon approaching and preparation is imperative. To help you optimize your time and money, I have included a non-comprehensive list of stores hours and BF ad rumors (in the quick summary) that can be continually updated as more information becomes known (Note: Store hours may vary depending upon region). I invite you to add to this thread with any helpful information you may have, such as addition store hours, where you plan on starting your day, and/or which sale is most important to you.

Note: These are unofficial reported store hours, as found publicly online.
