Patch's Guide to Black Friday

Wondering what time to set the alarm to snag the bargains? We've got the Black Friday hours for the major stores on the Peninsula.

Only the most dedicated of shoppers can find it in them to shake off the tryptophan, crawl out of bed before dawn and battle long lines for big Black Friday bargains. But America is nothing if not a country of consumers. This year, the National Retail Federation predicts 134 million shoppers will show up to swipe their credit cards.

Wonder where you can find Black Friday discounts on the Peninsula? Or maybe you've already made your list and checked it twice, but don't know what time you need to be at Best Buy to score that flat-screen TV you've been eyeing? Patch has you covered with a list of local store hours to map out your Black Friday shopping.
