Black Friday 2022 Start & End Dates

Big Lots has always run their Black Friday sales over a 4-day period since we started tracking them a number of years ago — from Thanksgiving day through Sunday night. However you’ll likely also see a handful of Thanksgiving-day-only doorbuster specials as well. If nothing changes here in 2022 then these are the sale dates that you can expect to see:

  • Expected Thanksgiving day sale: Thursday November 24, 2022. Stores will likely be open from 7:00AM to 9:00PM.
  • Expected Black Friday sale, start date: Friday November 25, 2022. Stores expected to open at 6:00AM.
  • Expected Black Friday sale, end date: Sunday November 27, 2022 or while in-stock quantities last.

We will be posting Big Lots’ confirmed Black Friday and Thanksgiving weekend sales schedule for 2022 as soon as we have the dates officially verified.
