Twenty-four hours not enough time to shop for great sales on Black Friday? No problem—in the past, some retailers have opened on Thanksgiving night to squeeze in a few more hours of holiday shopping. But this year, retailers have started the sales even earlier.

In a video from Newsy, learn how Amazon, Walmart, and other outlets have begun doubling down on sales in an effort to extend the holiday shopping season by a few weeks.

And for those still brave enough to venture out into the real world and shop in person, stores like OfficeMax and Sears are beginning sales early as well, though it’s difficult to say how much office supplies factor into holiday purchases. Unless you’re just really unsure what to buy your uncle Mark who only shows up every other Christmas.

Watch Newsy’s video to learn more about just how widespread early holiday shopping has become and rest easy. Now the convenience of rolling out of bed, clicking a few buttons, and waiting for a mail delivery on Black Friday can be achieved at just about any point in November.
