As far as I know the Lego Store also has a scratchcard on that day for everyone who goes in, with 10%, 25% of even 50% off the entire purchase. Of course all things can change, but that's probably your best bet for the Death Star [if there is one nearby].
If you luck into 25% or 50% off, that's pretty good. Unless a set ends up on clearance, Lego hardly ever gets that kind of markdown. And waiting for something to go on clearance is a bit of a crapshoot... though I passed on the 30% off Brickbeard's Bounty at TRU last week because I assume somebody
will have it half off at some point.
The other nice thing about this scratchcard would be that whenever you show up, you'd probably be able to get something decent on sale. As others have mentioned, the deals at places like Target and Walmart get cleaned out very quickly -- quickly enough that it's probably a waste of your time.

Wow, really? I'll probably be going to the LEGO Store for my Black Friday morning, then. Hopefully I can get a good price on the Battle of Endor.
50% off Endor would be pretty sweet. Otherwise amazon.com is probably your best bet: it's currently $88.99, with free shipping, and -- most critically for us Californians -- no sales tax. If I had more self control, I'd get all my LEGO from amazon.com...
Oh, speaking of Amazon: I do usually set my alarm for 7 am or whenever for Amazon's Black Friday deals. They usually have some decent sales, and I can get them from the luxury of my own home.
I don't know if they've ever included Lego in their Black Friday sales though.
