Major chains in our area were open for business on Thanksgiving, giving shoppers a head start on savings.
Shoppers didn't have wait until Friday for the best bargains. It was easy to find people who went to the store for a few last-minute items for dinner walking out with TVs, Blu-rays, toys and buy one, get one free bargains.
Area shoppers had plenty of options to choose from. K-Mart opened their doors at 6 a.m. Old Navy was the only store open at this Mishawaka plaza.
Walmart and Meijer were the two super centers open for business Thursday. Both stores offered Thanksgiving Day specials on electronics, shoes and toys.
