About this Deal
Walmart is extending its store hours again in time for the holiday shopping season and the second wave of its “Black Friday Deals for Days” sale.
By Saturday, most Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice, the company said.
“This will provide customers with greater options to shop for the food, medicine and supplies they need, while allowing us to spread customer traffic over more hours,” Walmart said in a statement to USA TODAY.
This is the second time Walmart is increasing hours after cutting them twice the week of March 15 amid the coronavirus pandemic. In mid-August, the retailer expanded hours by 90 minutes at 85% of stores across the nation and most stores closed at 10 p.m.

“As we continue reopening our operations, the health and safety of our associates, customers and communities will guide our decisions,” Walmart said in its statement, noting some stores could have shorter hours if "mandated by a government agency."
Stores operating with more reduced hours will keep current hours, Walmart tweeted Oct. 23.
Walmart also is continuing to offer a special shopping hour for seniors 60 and older and those most vulnerable every Tuesday morning, an hour before stores open to the public.

Walmart Thanksgiving and Black Friday
Walmart stores will be closed this Thanksgiving for the first time since the late 1980s and other retailers including Target and Best Buy are following suit.
Amid the pandemic, Walmart has an "all-new Black Friday experience" to spread out the savings throughout November with “Black Friday Deals for Days.”
As part of the sales, most Walmart stores will open at 5 a.m. local time on Saturday, Nov. 14 and then on Black Friday, Nov. 27.
