HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – Thanksgiving is right around the corner and while most are busy preparing their holiday menus, some are already looking forward to some early Christmas shopping.

If you’re one of those who live for the thrill of Black Friday insanity, Kmart has decided to raise the bar this year and open at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.

The store plans to stay open until 11 p.m. on Black Friday, that’s 41 hours straight!

It seems more and more retailers are bumping up the Black Friday sales; more recently starting right after Thanksgiving dinner, but Kmart is taking it to a whole new level.
