You don’t have to wait until Black Friday to find deals on your holiday shopping any more. Stores are opening earlier and earlier each year.

The deals kick off as early as 3 p.m. at stores like J.C. Penney.

Some Old Navy stores open at 4 p.m.

Best Buy stores open at 5 p.m., as does the Toys R Us in Jackson.

Most “big box” stores open tonight at 6 p.m., including Target, Sears, and Kohl’s.

Many of the stores at the Meridian Mall in Okemos, the Lansing Mall, and the Westwood Mall in Jackson will also open at 6 p.m.
