Despite Sears Holdings filing for bankruptcy and closing stores, Kmart and Sears will still have Black Friday sales.
Both retailers will start their in-store sales on Thanksgiving except where prohibited by state and local laws, much like other major retailers such as Walmart and Best Buy.

Kmart stores will be open from 6 a.m. to midnight on Thanksgiving and reopen 6 a.m. Black Friday. Sears stores open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving and close at midnight, then reopen at 5 a.m. on Black Friday. Doorbusters will be available in store during open hours, as well as online all day on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. According to company officials, no Black Friday sales will take place at closing stores. If you live near one of those, you can at least head online for this year’s Black Friday Sears and Kmart deals.
In announcing its sales, the parent company said stores are “re-focusing on what they are best known for to win the holiday selling season—from Craftsman tools to power brand toys to award-winning home appliances and apparel to the legendary Wish Book.”
Make your own doorbusters
Like in past years, both Sears and Kmart will offer cash-back savings for members of the free Shop Your Way loyalty program. However, this year, it’s being advertised as a “make your own doorbuster.”
Members will get “$50 CASHBACK in Points” on purchases of $50 or more in store. If they spend $250 or more in store or online Thursday to Sunday, they are qualified to receive “$250 CASHBACK in Points.” Members can even earn “FREECASH in Points” by texting the words GRAVY and TURKEY to 73277.
