2018 Store Hours

While Black Friday is celebrated on the day after Thanksgiving, over the years some retailers have pushed the envelope and decided to open their doors earlier than ever with some stores being open on Thanksgiving day. While some shoppers appreciate these earlier shopping times, there is still a good amount of backlash from other members of the public that view Thanksgiving as a time to spend with your family, eat turkey, and watch football - not to stand in line at the store. This backlash has lead to some major retailers scaling back their Thanksgiving store opening plans and instead remaining closed on Thanksgiving. This list of stores closed on Thanksgiving day include:

Stores Closed on Thanksgiving

  • BJ's
