Black Friday is today, Nov. 24, marking the start of the holiday shopping season. And while for some it's a tradition to camp outside of their favorite stores for hours to score deals on items like TVs and iPads, others have decided to shop online Black Friday sales instead. 

Black Friday in stores has widely been known to cause chaos in the aisles and long lines at the registers due to door-busting sales, but many of those deals are also online. However, if you're still planning to shop in person, it's best to know when the stores will open today.
