Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season, is expected to attract nearly 115 million US shoppers to stores this year, according to the National Retail Federation.  It's a day known for door-busting sales, as well as chaos in the aisles and long lines at the registers.

Some retailers have worked to discourage out-of-control conditions, including by spreading promotions throughout November and December.

"Black Friday has evolved over the years from a single day to an entire season," Walmart Chief Merchandising Officer Charles Redfield said in a statement last month.

But with consumers battling both inflation and supply shortages, there's no doubt Nov. 25 will still be a major shopping day. Here's a rundown of store hours on Black Friday 2022.
