HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The biggest shopping day is nearly upon us, and stores are busy stocking shelves and promoting deals before Black Friday shoppers take over.

Hattiesburg's Target is already getting calls on the Apple watch, which is something Target just recently started selling.

In addition to Apple products, Store Team Leader Marc Turnage said they will have deals on televisions, kitchen sets and games, all of which he expects to be at the top of many lists for Black Friday shoppers.

"It's exciting," Turnage said of the crowds. "There's a ton of people out, and last year, everyone was in a great mood."

Target has deals both online and in-store, with some deals being specific to either.

Turnage said deals that apply in-store can be purchased online and then picked up in-store, so customers do not have to wait in the longer lines.

"Our door busters will not be eligible, but a lot of our great Black Friday deals will be," he said, mentioning that in-store pickups should be made by the person whose name is listed on the pickup along with a photo ID.

Target joins many other stores joining the trend of opening on Thanksgiving evening rather than saving the shopping for actual Black Friday.

"It allows guests time to spend time with their families, eat lunch with their family, and then still get out here and not have to wait until the middle of the night to do their shopping," Turnage said.

Target is open from 6 p.m. Thursday until 11 p.m. Friday.
