KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- More than 76 percent of Americans plan to shop over the Thanksgiving holiday, but many metro stores will switch out Black Friday for Orange Wednesday to give shoppers a jumpstart on the deals.

The idea is to grab all the Black Friday discounts before Thanksgiving, so you can spend time with your family on the actual holiday.

According to a new study by Deloitte, nearly 7 in 10 people say they wont be shopping on Thanksgiving Day because it's too important to spend time with friends and family.

Nearly 67 percent of people disagree with stores even being open on Thanksgiving.

In an effort to catch the early deals, hundreds of families will dress in orange to catch the shopping deals. Employees will hand out gift cards to early bird shoppers.

People plan to spend$400 between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, which is a slight uptick from last year when people spent on average $369.

The study also found shoppers plan to spend more than half of their budget online and only 46 percent in physical stores.
