You may still have time to shop before Thanksgiving dinner.

Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, said Tuesday that it will move some of its holiday deals back to 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, from 8 p.m. last year, joining a growing list of retailers trying to capture the deal-hunting “Black Friday” shoppers a whole day earlier.

The stores will offer separate discounts at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Thursday, though it’s holding back some exclusive sales for the traditional Black Friday morning shopping period, USA Today reports.

Other stores, including Target, Best Buy and Macy’s, have said they will open earlier or for the first time Thursday. Kart will open at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning and stay open for 41 straight hours.
