The Walmart chain plans to begin Black Friday a little early this year by starting on Thursday.

Black Friday is the big shopping day the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is just two weeks away.

Stores usually offer some good deals to get shoppers in a spending mood. Most of the big chains open their doors at midnight.

However, Walmart wants to get an edge. They plan to open their doors at 10 p.m. Thursday.
