Canadian stores typically opening later than in US
Only some Apple Stores in the US and Canada will be opening early on Black Friday, reports note. In the US a portion, generally ones inside malls, will be open at 6AM. Others will be open at their regular times, and/or between 7 and 9AM. Canadian outlets will be open no earlier than 7AM, but otherwise follow a similar pattern. Apple's retail website provides details for individual store hours.
Less than a handful of shops will be open on American Thanksgiving itself. There had been some indications that Apple would expand the number, but the company has reversed course, allowing more Apple Store workers to enjoy the holiday.
