Early Black Friday Hours, Deal Guarantees Coming

    You may want to skip the seconds and head straight over to the stores this Thanksgiving.

    FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig explains why:

    Big retailers are already offering reasons to start your holiday shopping now.

    (Walmart Commercial) "Layaway is back, earlier than ever."

    Now, Walmart - and analysts say other retailers will likely follow - announcing they'll open at 8pm on Thanksgiving, their earliest Black almost-Friday opening yet.

    Not only that, some of those deals that seem to sell-out instantly will be guaranteed.  Get in line between 10 & 11 Thanksgiving night, and Walmart - and, again, likely other stores - will honor the price on certain popular items if you pay in-store by midnight and register your purchase online for shipment to the store, so you can pick it up by Christmas Day.
