Columbia, SC (WLTX) - While Thanksgiving is a time of coming together to be with family, it's also become another tradition--holiday sales.
For years, those deals have been known as "Black Friday," but in some ways, that name no longer applies, as several major retailers plan to be open on Thanksgiving Day.
We've compiled some information for shoppers to help you get the best deals available. For example, you can download these store maps for several major retailers. ( www.wltx.com/common/blackfriday2013/)
We've also got a list here of store hours of retailers here in the Midlands.

And finally, here are the shopping list of deals, courtesy of DealGuppy.com, for many of the major retailers you'll find here in the Midlands.
The lists showcases which products will be on sale Black Friday, and the products marked (Early Bird) are limited quantity items. In some cases this year, items on "sale" are not even reduced, which you'll find on the Lowe's stock list.
Please keep in mind that stock of the hottest items will sell-out extremely quickly, may vary by location and stores sometimes make last-minute adjustments.
