LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Forget Black Friday, Black Thursday has arrived!
Several Southland stores opened their doors on Thanksgiving this year in hopes of ringing in the holidays with some big sales.
“We’ve been preparing for about 30 days,” Melissa Millea Wood, district manager for Old Navy Los Angeles, told CBS2.
“Thanksgiving has become pretty a steady day for us,” she says. “We have a lot of fun with customers and the promotions are still fantastic.”
Old Navy stores will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, when they will close for four hours before reopening at midnight.
