Black Friday at Golf Mill Shopping Center in Niles will get going at 8 p.m. Thursday, Thanksgiving Day 2012, with Sears being the first to open. Target follows an hour later, and Kohl's and The Children's Place start doing business at midnight.
By 3 a.m., you'll need caffeine, so it's a good thing Gloria Jean's will start brewing it up at that hour.
At 4 a.m., many fashion stores, including Bath and Body Works and Express, open. McDonald's and more stores come to life at 5 a.m.
And by 6 a.m., the entire mall will be humming with life.
The Wal-Mart kitty-corner from Golf Mill opens at 8 p.m. Thursday, and the Best Buy, across Greenwood Avenue to the west, opens at midnight.
