    Sears and Kmart say they will open on Thanksgiving day again this year with extended hours to draw shoppers.

    Sears will open at its earliest time ever — letting shoppers in at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. The retailer decided two years ago to open on Thanksgiving and nudged up its opening time by two hours this year.

    Kmart will open its doors at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving and stay open for 42 hours straight, an hour longer than last year.

    The company is also offering special offers at both chains in the weeks preceding Thanksgiving.
