FORT MYERS, Fla.-Back to Black Friday! That's what Target is calling their one-day online "Christmas in July" sale. Several other businesses are also on the bandwagon. The sales come about four months early, but retailers are trying to use this early black Friday as a preview of some of the great deals you'll be able to get before the holiday shopping season.

On Friday, July 23rd, Target is having the earliest ever "Black Friday" sale. Offering an average of 40% off regular prices on clothing, electronics, toys, housewares, movies and music.

Target has deals on more than 500 items.

You can get a 47 inch HDTV for $700, that's $300 off. Or a bluray player for only $100 at Target.

Some of the other retailers offering specials this weekend include, Colonial Candle,, QVC, and Sears just to name a few.

K-Mart is having a family and friends sale on Sunday, July 25th.

Toys R Us has a Cyber Monday sale planned too.
