Here’s what stores are closed on Thanksgiving

It is never too early to plan for holiday shopping. A huge part of that planning is sorting through the cornucopia of sales, deals, circulars, online coupons, and which stores are opening or closing for the holidays. A big concern is what stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year, but there is already a list of stores who say they won’t be opening for the initial holiday rush. You can still shop most of these stores online on Thanksgiving if you want.

This list is subject to change, per BestBlackFriday.com:
