Black Friday is a given. You can expect almost every retailer is open the day after Thanksgiving. The real question these days is which stores remain loyal to the tradition of closing on Thanksgiving Day and which ones compete and serve the needs of those who want to get a jump on their holiday shopping.

From I've compiled a handy list of retailers in New Jersey you can expect to be open and then a separate list of those that remain closed. As always with lists like these, it is best to check with your particular location ahead of time.
