Find out who is open early and where to get the best deals to kick off the holiday shopping season in our Black Friday strategy guide for Kalamazoo.

There are some people who are finished with their Christmas shopping. I don't understand those people. For many, Thanksgiving, or the day after- commonly known as Black Friday is the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season. May retailers have incredible "doorbuster" deals to get you in their stores and help them bring their financial sheet into the black for the year.

Of course, 2020 will look different, so be prepared. Wear your mask. Currently, face coverings are mandated indoors in Michigan- these stores are no exception. Practicing patience and social distancing might be tougher, but they are also important this year. Many retailers have already announced they will be closed on Thanksgiving this year, but are ready to get the 2020 holiday shopping season underway on November 27.
