LIST: Stores That Will Stay Closed this Thanksgiving

There are less than 50 days left until Thanksgiving, and that means we’ll soon be talking about shopping…. on Thanksgiving.

For the last few years, there was a trend where retailers seemed to open earlier and earlier on Black Friday. Some opened so much earlier that their Black Friday sales began on Thanksgiving Thursday! As someone who loves to shop, I am always looking for an incredible deal. But even I will not support stores being open on Thanksgiving. Is nothing sacred anymore?

We told you earlier this week that forecasts say Black Friday shopping will decrease in popularity. Now it seems that retailers are scaling back this year and more are announcing they will be closed on Thanksgiving. 

Here's the list of 50+ chains that have already announced they will stay closed on Thanksgiving:

  • A.C. Moore
