Today is "Black Friday." What do you need to know before heading out to the stores in Woburn?

It's the biggest shopping day of the year, and Woburn's stores are jumping into the post-Thanksgiving retail frenzy.

Here are Five Things you need to know before heading out on Black Friday!

1) Midnight shoppers: will open its doors at midnight to accommodate excited shoppers trying to get a sweet deal. Check out the flyer on Target's web site before you head out to make sure you have a shopping plan in place!

2) Toys!: Who doesn't love toys for Christmas? If you've got little ones to shop for, you'll want to hit early. The store will open at midnight at Horn Pond Plaza and offer huge discounts on the season's hottest toys. We're not quite sure what Furreal Friends are, but you can save $100 on the "Butterscotch Pony" after midnight! The Toys R Us flyer can be found on the store's website.

3) Earn money, shop early: is offering tons of "Early Bird" specials when it opens its doors at midnight. On top of discounts and sale prices, you can earn $15 in "Kohls Cash" for every $50 you spend on Black Friday. Kohl's has offers on everything in the store from jewelry, outerwear, clothes for men and women and toys. Check the flyer on Kohl's website!

4) Pamper those pets: Let's not forget our furry family members this Black Friday! on Commerce Way will open its doors at 7 a.m. Friday, while will be open its normal hours. Both stores are offering tons of deals on great items for your pets, including doggie sweaters, toys and homes for your pets. Check the flyers on PetSmart's website and Petco's website.

5) Don't forget the boys: Woburn is lucky to have tons of stores dedicated to every imaginable interest! While you're out on Black Friday, don't forget to pick something up for the men in your life. Is he a boater? Stop by on Mishawum. Or a fixer-upper kind of guy? Make it on Commerce Way.

WRONG! Went to Target in Woburn and the sign said the time had been changed to 1am. Lot's of very unhappy customers who left not wanting to wait 1 hour for it to open. Kohls also changed their time from what was printed in their flyer to 1am. Walmart said 10pm on their flyer and the North Reading store changed it to 5am Friday. Wish they had done a better job notifying customers of the last-minute change. Very frustrating!!!

I went on the target website and the kohls website where both clearly say they are opening at 1am ...

Oh no! When I wrote this story, both stores clearly said on their websites and printed flyers: midnight for the Woburn stores. :(

I appreciate shopping for deals on Black Friday but find going out at 9 or 10 am I still get good bargains. I feel sorry for all the employees of stores in other states whose holiday was ruined by the early Thanksgiving shopping hours. Thank goodness we have Blue laws to protect our employees from the Big stores who want a jump on the holiday season !
