Closed on Thanksgiving Day

In the COVID-19 era, most major retailers have decided they don’t need to be open on Thanksgiving Day and Best Buy is no exception. After all, every e-commerce survey suggests there will be a huge increase in online shopping this year.

But on Black Friday, Nov. 27, Best Buy will open stores at 5 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. local time, Stores will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday and at 10 a.m. on Sunday that weekend.

“We’ve also extended our holiday hours in our stores to accommodate shoppers this holiday season, so our doors are now open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local time,” the company said in a press release.

Best Buy says it plans additional promotions between now and Black Friday, with the next one running Nov. 5-8. 

Best Buy has taken several steps to enhance safety in stores. The retailer said there will be a shopping guide at the entrance to the store to help customers quickly find what they’re looking for, limiting the time they spend in the store.

In fact, Best Buy will continue a current policy that limits the number of customers in the store at the same time. As always, shoppers will be required to wear a face-covering while inside the store.
