After weeks of early Black Friday sales, Black Friday proper is officially here with extended store hours and new deals.

Why it matters: Nov. 25 is expected to be one of the busiest shopping days of the year, according to holiday predictions from the National Retail Federation and Sensormatic Solutions.

By the numbers: The federation estimates 166.3 million people are planning to shop between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, which is nearly 8 million more people than last year.

  • Eight in 10 consumers plan to shop during the five-day holiday period (Thanksgiving through Monday), up from 71% last year, a survey from Deloitte found.

The big picture: More consumers are expected to return to in-store shopping this year, a Samba TV and HarrisX report found.

What's happening: While hours vary by retailer and sometimes by location, 5am is the earliest opening hour with Best Buy, Kohl's and JCPenney opening then.

  • Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's and Macy's open at 6am.
  • Target, Marshalls, T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods open at 7am.
