So much has been made of the time that the stores open for Black Friday Shoppers - like 5 and 6pm on Thanksgiving Day - but what about the closing times?  How long do we have to shop today?

I've been hearing that the Black Friday crowds will pick up as the day goes on, and the early morning crowds were the lightest.  Is that true for you?

Regardless, there's still plenty of time to get the Black Friday deals.

Boise Town Square Mall is open until 9pm today.

The Boise Factory Outlets will close at 8pm for the most part, with a few stores (Carters and VF Outlet) staying open until 9pm.

Ross Dress for Less at Karcher Mall is staying open until 11:30pm.

Best Buy and Bed, Bath, and Beyond at Treasure Valley Marketplace will be open until 10pm.

Most Village at Meridan stores will stay open until 10 or 11pm.

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday - a great opportunity to support mom and pop shops across the Treasure Valley.  And then Cyber Monday comes.  There is no shortage of good excuses to shop.  Have fun!
