Find the Best Black Friday Deals in Capitola-Soquel

Capitola Mall will open their doors at 12 a.m. on Nov. 23, and stay open 24 hours.

If you have a black belt in Black Friday shopping, listen up: area big-box retailers are gearing up to dazzle bargain hunters even earlier this year—starting on Thanksgiving Day!

Last week, Walmart announced that it would open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 22 and offer holiday doorbusters while supplies last. These include deals on TVs, iPads, an electric scooter for $79 and a steam mop for $39.

Not to be outdone, Target and Best Buy are also planning all-out holiday shopping assaults.

Target's deals begin at 9 p.m. According to an ad leaked online, the best deals will be for TVs, a Nook, a Nikon camera and an XBOX 360 Kinect bundle.

At Best Buy, doors open at midnight. Doorbusters include deals on TVs, phones and Samsung laptop bundles.

Walmart will offer its biggest deals from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. The store will offer three items at low prices—an iPad, a TV and a Blu-ray player. If the store runs out, you can still buy them at discounted prices but you must register for them online by midnight and have them delivered to your local store.

Capitola Mall will open their doors at midnight on Nov., 23, and the first 1,000 shoppers through the doors will receive a special holiday shopping bag. There will be raffles every hour until 4 a.m. to win items from various retailers, and a $100 Capitola Mall gift certificate. For more information on the super sale, visit the Capitola Mall website

According to TheBlackFriday.com, several other stores will also have doorbuster sales on Thursday night or at midnight on Friday, including Kohl's. 

For the early morning traditionalists, some stores will open at 4 a.m. with special sales. If you want to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals, you can check your favorite retailers' Facebook pages. 

Want to avoid the holiday shopping mega-crowds altogether? Look for Cyber Monday deals on Nov. 26 or visit your local mom-and-pop retailers on Small Business Saturday on Nov. 24.

I am sick and tired of these money-hungry mega stores; and I am embarrassed by the culture we live in that is encouraging greed to take over our holidays. Target and Walmart report unfathomable profits each year, and now they open their doors on Thanksgiving day??? They just lost my business this holiday season. I've had enough. I'll be doing all of my shopping locally this year. I recognize that I will be paying a little more money, and so I will be buying a little bit less. Bigger and better is not better. Kaleidoscope, Capitola Book Cafe, Outside In, Warmth Company, etc. I'd rather give these small stores my money.
