The turkey may still be brining, but this year’s holiday discounts have already begun.

Kohl’s kicked off its turkey-day discounts on Monday, while Old Navy is offering 50 percent off everything beginning Wednesday. By the time Thanksgiving morning rolls around, nearly every major retailer will be offering Black Friday deals online in an effort to get customers to open their wallets before they’ve baked their first pie.

The majority of Americans say they’ll shop online this holiday season, with internet sales poised to surpass $100 billion for the first time. But that’s not stopping retailers from opening their stores as early as ever (in some cases, even earlier).

For those hoping to snag deals in stores, here’s a roundup of what’s opening when.

Thanksgiving Day

6 a.m. Kmart is one of the first to open, continuing a five-year streak of early-morning deals. So-called door busters will be offered until 2 p.m. Friday.

7 a.m. Dollar General opens its stores.

8 a.m. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s open.

2 p.m. JC Penney opens an hour earlier than it did last year.

3 p.m. Old Navy, which began offering Black Friday deals at 6 a.m. Wednesday, opens its doors for another day of holiday discounts.

5 p.m. Toys R Us opens, with plans to stay open for 30 hours straight. Kohl’s, Macy’s and Best Buy also kick off in-store sales.

6 p.m. Walmart, Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Five Below and Michael’s join the lineup, as do some Sears stores.

Black Friday

5 a.m. Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s reopen with a second round of deals. Dick’s Sporting Goods and Sears are also back in the game.

6 a.m. Macy’s, Target and Kmart begin welcoming customers again.

7 a.m. Five Below, Michael’s and Dollar General reopen.

8 a.m. Best Buy opens again.
