The Black Friday deals bonanza is now fully underway, which means you can pick up fantastic online bargains from the likes of Amazon, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. But what if you want to shop in physical stores and peruse the bargains in person? 

Many tech stores open early on Black Friday – which, if you haven't noticed, is today, November 24. So we've rounded up all of the opening hours for the biggest tech stores, and also their closing times if you're looking to drop in later.

With a number of stores, including Walmart and Target, closed for Thanksgiving, in-person competition is likely to be hot today – so it pays to draw up your battle plans in advance if you want to avoid the long queues.

The Apple Store Shopping Event also starts today, and runs through to November 27, which means you can get gift cards worth up to $200 to spend on accessories and more in the Apple Store. Deciding how to use a card is often easiest when you're browsing in one of Apple's physical stories, so we've included it in the list below.

Good luck in the sales!
