In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

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.
