Don't overload on the tyrptophan on Thanksgiving or you'll be too sleepy to take advantage of all the early shopping on Black Friday.

If you’re just crazy enough to get up and brave the crowds, then set your alarms and grab your coffee and Christmas lists. And if you want to strategize beforehand, here's your guide to what's open when:

The Big Malls:

Fashion Valley Select stores, 4 a.m. - 9 p.m. (Spotlight: Ted Baker London opens at 8 a.m. and offers 30% off.)

Horton Plaza Select stores, 8 a.m. - 9 p.m.

UTC Select stores, 7 a.m. - 9 p.m.

Open at midnight:

All Best Buys

All Targets

All Walmarts

...And on Saturday:

If you can’t manage to get out of bed Friday morning, go support some of San Diego’s local businesses in North Park at the first ever Small Business Saturday. Tip: if you use your American Express card you’ll get $25 back on shopping and dining (this Saturday only!).
