Dick’s Sporting Goods has announced its plans for this year’s holiday shopping. Most of its 645 locations will offer extended store hours on Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, and Black Friday, Nov. 27. Customers can also shop deals online all day on Thanksgiving.
On both days, more than 200 locations will offer the first 200 eligible customers each day a chance to win a $500 gift card through its “Santa’s Safe” promotion. Customers will be given a code, and the winners will be announced shortly after the store opens. The card can be used immediately.
On Thanksgiving Day, stores will be open from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. On Black Friday, they’ll re-open at 5 a.m. and remain open until 10 p.m. A number of offers and doorbusters will also be available in store and online on well-recognized brands, wearables and equipment.
Also on these days, Dick’s is holding an online sweepstakes that asks customers to take a photo of a product in the store, then post it to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #GiftThatMatters. The sweepstakes will run from 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving through 5:15 p.m. on Black Friday. Ten customers will win a $500 gift card.
Starting Sunday, Nov. 29, Dick’s will hold its biggest Cyber Week sale, with over 300 online deals at Dicks.com. The sale will run through Saturday, Dec., 5. The next day, Dick’s will will kick off its “12 Days of Deals,” revealing new deals daily.
