Black Friday? That was SO 2011. Walmart, the nation's largest retailer, has announced that it will begin holiday shopping specials at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, November 22, according to media reports.

The move could put more pressure on big-box retailers such as Target and Best Buy to push their own opening times earlier, according to Bizjournals. According to an ad on Walmart.com, Black Friday/Thursday specials include $399 for an iPad 2 (16GB) and $148 for a 32-inch television.
