Black Friday prices begin early today

You no longer have to get up early to snag Black Friday bargains. More stores than ever will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

You can start shopping at 6 a.m. today at Kmart and keep shopping through Christmas Eve. Retailers are racing to get their doors open first and lure early shoppers with doorbuster specials.

Target is offering $3 appliances and a 40-inch Westinghouse LCD television for $298. Walmart has a $198 laptop. Best Buy is offering a Samsung Fascinate phone on Verizon Wireless for $1 with a new activation and a two-year contract.

Here's what time some Wichita stores are opening for their advertised specials.
