(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - You won't have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to get Black Friday deals from Sears, apparently.
The retailer has announced that customers can shop the store's 'Doorbuster' discounts online starting November 18th--five days before Black Friday.
Industry analysts say that will put Sears first in line to offer Black Friday deals this year.
This week, Wal-Mart announced that its Black Friday deals will be available in stores starting at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
