Wal-Mart has added itself to the list of retailers getting a head start on the holiday shopping season the company said in a press release Tuesday.
The company will open its doors at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, along with 8 a.m. Black Friday, Nov. 29.
"Black Friday is our day - our Super Bowl - and we're ready to prove once again that no one does it better than Wal-Mart," Bill Simon, president and chief executive officer of Wal-Mart U.S. said in a statement. "We're excited to give our customers an incredible Black Friday with shopping hours that will allow them to take advantage of great prices on Thanksgiving night and all weekend long. Delivering for our customers wouldn't be possible without our associates. They are a critical component of our success throughout the year, and especially during the holiday season. We appreciate each associate and the time they are dedicating to serve the families who shop our stores. As we have in the past, we'll be recognizing their hard work with additional pay and free meals during their shifts. This year, as a special thanks, associates who work on Thanksgiving Day will receive a 25 percent discount on an entire purchase this holiday season."
