We took the data from the past 5 years to find out how soon before Black Friday each ad typically gets leaked here on GottaDeal.com. We then based those days on this year's Black Friday date, November 28th, to come up with a calendar for this year for many of the most popular stores.
Of course you may remember that last year we had a crazy 36-hour period that saw ads from Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Kohl's, Sears, Kmart, Sam's Club, Home Depot and many others all released right after each other. We expect something similar this year around November 10-11.

In an email sent to their employees on Thursday, Macy's management revealed that they will be opening at 6pm on Thursday for their Black Friday sale this year.
