East Cobb's two signature retail centers are avoiding the rush to Black Friday, for the most part.
At The Avenue East Cobb, Jos. A Bank was open from 10 p.m. Thursday to 2 a.m. Friday.
But other stores are waiting until daylight hours today to begin a long Black Friday.
Most other stores will observe their normal opening hours, including Whole Foods, which opens at 9 a.m.
See the attached PDF for complete Black Friday hours for each Merchant's Walk store and information on sales, coupons and discounts.
At The Avenue, several retailers also will be open extended hours, including American Eagle, Banana Republic, Bed, Bath and Beyond, the Gap and Peach Mac.
