Kmart is the first of the big box stores to open for Thanksgiving sales, beginning at 6 a.m. on Thursday, including at the chain’s Cromwell location.

“People don’t just want to sit at home all day on Thanksgiving. They want to get out and do things, shop,” said Bill Bonsor, the Kmart store manager in Mableton, Georgia. “It’s just evolved into a bigger shopping day — almost as big a shopping day as Black Friday.”

Other retailers like Toys R Us, Walmart, Macy’s, Kohl’s, J.C. Penney and Sears wait until Thursday evening to open their doors.

Electronics are again popular “doorbuster” items. Look for specials on TVs, Kindles, iPads and other tablets.
