MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. — Kohl's Department Stores says it will open its doors on Thanksgiving for the first time, adding to the growing ranks of retailers trying to get a jump start on the holiday shopping season. 

This critical shopping season used to start on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Retailers have been nudging their opening times earlier over the years in response to intense competition and tough economic times. Department store chain Macy's said last week that it also would open on Thanksgiving. 

Kohl's said Monday that it will open its doors at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and remain open all day Friday. 

The Menomonee Falls, Wis.-based company operates 1,158 stores across the country.
