Anna Jerrems , Reporter

Frantic people pushing and shoving each other, a mom screaming at her crying kid, store clerks with sweaty faces and pained eyes, all in a line that stretches for three blocks; can you imagine any better way to kick off the holiday season other than Black Friday shopping?

On Nov 24, 2017, stores across the country are opening their doors as early as midnight, offering the lowest prices of the season. Here is where to go for the deals that are actually worth the hunt.

Multiple stores actually opt out of the midnight blowout in order to create a more family-oriented holiday season.

Stores who are keeping their doors closed on Thanksgiving include; H & M, T.J. Maxx, REI, DSW, Nordstrom, and Patagonia. However, feel free to make the 15 minute drive to Hunt Valley to take advantage of some great prices.

Go to Dicks Sporting Goods Store and get $70 off of all Fitbits, 25% off Sorel boots, 50% off all Reebok apparel, or 25% off Colombia Quarter zips.

Make the trip downstairs to Ulta. Doors open Thursday night starting at 6pm and stay open until 2 a.m. On Friday, shoppers are welcome from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Some of the best deals include; Urban Decay Nocturnal Shadow Box, for 50% off, now making the makeup essential only $14.50. The Anastasia Beverly Hills kit is 40% off.

At the Towson Mall, head towards Nordstrom in order to get an extra 25% off all sale items. Free People’s store is expected to have the entire store 50% off.

Need to buy a toy for your favorite younger cousin? Go to Target! Their best deals include; 50% off all games and save $25 on all Fujifilm Polaroid Cameras.
