If you’re in the mood for some holiday shopping after your Thanksgiving meal, you’re in luck.

Bealls and Wal-Mart are opening their doors at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, while Sears will open at 7 p.m. And if last year is any indication, there will surely be lots of shoppers lined up waiting to take advantage of the blockbuster deals the stores are having. Sales will continue Friday and throughout the weekend.  

“We are absolutely thrilled to open our stores earlier this year, said Michael Glazer, president and CEO of Stage Stores Inc., Bealls’ parent company. “We know our customers are eager to get started on their holiday shopping and find the best deals available. Our stores offer gifts for the entire family from the best-loved brands, and we know we are going to make a lot of customers happy.”

Among the “mega doorbuster deals” Bealls is highlighting is a limited quantity of 7-inch Android tablets for $49.99 on Thursday, and a 14.0-Megapixel digital camera for $19.99 on Friday.

Not to be outdone, Walmart is also offering cut-rate prices on things like televisions, and it’s highlighting its one-hour in stock guarantee. That means that if you’re at Walmart before 7 p.m. Thursday and if any of about 17  special priced items sell out within that first hour, you’ll receive a guarantee card for that item.

Sears, meanwhile, is promoting 30 percent off all Kenmore Elite appliances on Thursday evening along with “1,000 doorbusters.”

If you prefer shopping locally-owned business, the Las Vegas First Independent Business Alliance has a special promotion for you. When you shop at participating merchants and accumulate $50 in receipts, you’ll get one entry into a random drawing for $1,000, $500 or $250 in Las Vegas First Independent Business Bucks. The drawing will be Jan. 8.
