Holiday shopping and Black Friday sales know no boundaries. A good sale never sleeps nor does it take a day off. Macy's 2018 Black Friday hours offer you lots and lots of time to shop its various departments, extensive clothing aisles, and vast beauty counters. The holiday shopping hours are that expanded.

The retailer's Black Friday shopping extravaganza kicks off two days early. It begins online on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 3 p.m. local time. You can spend your Thanksgiving Eve baking some yummy goodies or preparing the fixings of your holiday meal. Then, you have the option to close out your night with a mug of steaming hot cider and by engaging in some retail therapy via Macy's.

As for Black Friday hours? Well, those actually start on Thanksgiving Day, which is Thursday, Nov. 22, at 5 p.m. and run through 2 a.m. local time. Once you've noshed on turkey — or tofurkey — as well as stuffing, green bean casserole, and pumpkin and/or apple pie, you can head over to your fave Macy's store to shop 'til you drop. Thanksgiving is basically Black Friday Eve!

On actual Black Friday, Nov. 23, Macy's opens at 6 a.m. local time. However, please be aware that Macy's Black Friday hours vary by store.
