BrandsMart opening Thanksgiving

STOCKBRIDGE — BrandsMart USA has announced that all 10 store locations will be opening on Thanksgiving evening at 6 p.m., offering the usual hot buys at extremely low prices throughout the store, to kick off the holiday shopping season. The stores will be open through Friday evening at 10 p.m.

Brandsmart said in a news release this week, “Although we are opening earlier on Thanksgiving evening, we have an entire weekend of specials for shoppers with different time needs. Thanksgiving night/Black Friday is only the beginning of the holiday season savings on virtually every department in the store. Shoppers will find door buster items on Thanksgiving evening, with a whole new round of specials starting early Friday morning at 5 a.m. Saturday and Sunday will bring all new offers.”

Prices on TVs, tablets and other electronics will be lowered during the holiday weekend, along with appliances, furniture and bedding. “We’ve been anticipating this holiday weekend for months now, and have made sure that our ‘limited quantities’ are in the hundreds, not in single digits,” said Randy Johnson, Chief Merchandising Officer.

With one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas, BrandsMart said customers have been asking about extended hours, as seen by malls and other retailers opening early this year. “We felt we needed to accommodate our customers,” the news release stated.
