This week is the busiest time of year for retailers who are getting prepared for Black Friday, and Thanksgiving Day for some stores.

Some workers said they'll be in to work as early as two or three in the morning on Black Friday.

Workers at Lowe's are getting ready for Friday, one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Although Lowe's won't be open on Thanksgiving, you can see the deals online and they are even getting orders ready for pick up.

"People can go on there and shop and see what the specials are going to be, see the prices, make their orders or wish lists, and be able to come in and pick them up whenever. We shop for them, and they can go hit the other stores wherever else they wanted to go,"said Assistant Store Manager Craig Bludworth

Bludworth said that a lot of people want to avoid the holiday crowds.

Other stores like Dillard's say they stay busy as well making sure everything is in order for shoppers. 

"It's a lot about organization. Making sure it's in the places that it's supposed to be," explained Store Manager David Pursley, "once Black Friday hits, from there till about New Years Day, will be the busiest season."

And although Dillard's won't be open until 8 a.m. on Friday, they said they will be ready for the shoppers who have already been out for a while. 

"Some of them I hear stories that they have been out six hours, eight hours," 

Lowe's Home Improvement will open their doors at 5 am on Black Friday.
