We are in the thick of the holidays and many of you have already started your Christmas shopping.

(Okay, most of you ladies have started. The guys haven't even thought about it yet.)

But for sure, stores are gearing up for the biggest shopping day of the year -- Black Friday.

It appears that if you do want to get out and do some in-store shopping you'll have to wait until Friday as most major retailers these days have gone away from opening on Thanksgiving Day.

Whether the reason is public backlash or the pandemic years limiting the workforce, that's a discussion for another day.

With some help from TheBlackFriday.com, we've put together a list of some of the major retailers in the state of Louisiana and their Black Friday hours. We also included Thanksgiving Day for the few that will be opening at some point that day.
