But while some shoppers might enjoy the experience of camping outside their favorite stores in the November weather, doing your Black Friday shopping online at home in your pajamas is an advantage that can't be overstated during Thanksgiving time - especially since stores like Walmart have a pick-up in store option.
New York & Company, a wear-to-work fashion retailer for women, will have a big Black Friday 2017 sales event with savings up to 75% and hundreds of doorbuster deals. In addition, nearly two-thirds (60 percent) of the holiday gift budget during the Black Friday shopping week (Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday) will go towards tech products.More news: Hardik Patel says viral video is morphed, BJP is playing dirty games

Despite the controversy about stores remaining open on Thanksgiving, 49% of American adults will shop that day, but more will be shopping online or via a mobile device, at 33%, than will be shopping in store, at 30%.More news: Bill Gates announces major donation to advance the fight against Alzheimer's
