Another retailer is getting a jump start on the traditional Black Friday sales that kick off the holiday shopping season. Toys R Us will now open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

Toys R Us is hoping that after consumers feast on a Thanksgiving bird, they turn into early bird shoppers.

The toy retailer is hoping to entice shoppers with a free $50 gift card with the purchase of any Apple iPod Touch.

Wal-Mart is also opening its doors on Thanksgiving at 10 p.m. Others, like Best Buy and Macys, are opening at midnight.
