BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Retailers are ready for the Black Friday rush after Thanksgiving this week. There are some helpful tools for shoppers rushing around to find the best bargains.
Black Friday is exciting, but it's also a big investment. So it's important to plan it out and make the shopping trip worth your time.
News 4 Web Producer Emily Lenihan said, "For a few years now we've put together the Black Friday Info page and thousands of people go to it, and it's a great place for people to find all the information on the Internet in on place."
Simply start by logging onto WIVB.com and you'll find the Black Friday Info box at the top right corner. Click it and it'll take you to a whole new page. The best part is the leaked ads.

There the store lists every sale item by category, with it's price and a link if available.
On WIVB.com you'll also find links to store websites and Black Friday hours since many are earlier this year.
There are over 70 stores listed on the website, and News 4 has checked with each store to find out their Black Friday hours.
Lenihan said, "I did, I called every one, but I wanted to make sure we had the correct information and I wanted to make sure people had the best shopping experience they could. It was a few hours for me, but it's going to be just second for everyone else."
On the right side of the page you find local mall hours for Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, and Saturday.
