Turns out local Black Friday shoppers can sleep in, just a little.

Auburn’s Walmart, JCPenney and Kohl’s are sticking with the 5 a.m. Black Friday opening hours all three adopted last year, according to store staff.

For GameStop, it’s 7 a.m.

But do bundle up: The National Weather Service is forecasting 31 degree temps at 5 a.m. Friday with a 20% chance of precipitation, according to meteorologist Donny Dumont.

And, ho ho ho: It might be a rainy/snowy mix by that evening.
