As Thanksgiving weekend approaches, the much anticipated Black Friday sales are right around the corner.

The National Retail Federation says an estimated 134 million people shopped over Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. Of those, 87 million shopped on Black Friday itself.

While those numbers are indeed significant, it was fewer than the year before. NRF economists figure that consumers are shifting their behavior with retailers offering more deals before Thanksgiving and more shopping online.

But that doesn’t mean Black Friday deals are unimportant.

“Consumers are more savvy and sophisticated than ever before,” said NRF’s CEO and President Matthew Shay in a news release. “The recession had a tremendous impact on how consumers shop . they have a few more dollars in their wallets, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t going to be smart about how and when they spend.”

A close reading of the leaked Black Friday circulars reveals that while many deals are in place as of early Friday, others kick off later in the day on Black Friday.
