November is here, and people already want to know which sales stores will be running as well as their schedules during Thanksgiving and Black Friday. While Black Friday will most likely have extended opening and closing hours, Thanksgiving will not.
That is because in recent years, many companies have chosen to close up their shops to provide their employees with a chance to spend some time with their families. For those who still want to shop during the holiday, we’ve got the inside scoop on all the stores that will close on Thanksgiving to save you the disappointment.
Plenty of online sales have already begun. Consumers can find early Black Friday sales at Best Buy, Target and many others. Since the pandemic, online sales have spiked and provide less of a need to go out on Thanksgiving and line up outside of a crowded store.
However, some people still prefer to purchase their items in person on Black Friday. That said, shopping on Thanksgiving this year won’t offer many alternatives of outlets as the years before. That’s because almost all of the big names in retail have confirmed they will be closing for the holiday.
Below, you’ll see a list of all the big retail companies that have confirmed whether they will open or shut their doors this Thanksgiving. That way, you can plan your shopping ahead and learn which stores to go and which stores to avoid during the holiday.
Stores that won’t open on Thanksgiving
Since the holiday shopping season – particularly Black Friday – is an incredibly busy time, many retailers have chosen to shut their doors on Thanksgiving. Partly to give some well deserved time off to their staff, and partly to prepare for Black Friday madness.
This trend started a couple of years ago and will remain in 2022. Almost all of the major retail stores have already declared they will not open on Thanksgiving Day. The stores that will close on the holiday are:
Apple, Best Buy, Bath & Body Works, Costco, BJ’S, Homesense, JCPenny, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, Petco, REI, Sam’s Club, Publix, Trader Joe’s, Target, TJ Maxx and Walmart.
Evidently, you won’t be able to physically shop in any of these stores during Thanksgiving. However, you can still purchase any of their items online. In fact, many of these retail stores are launching online deals on or even before Thanksgiving Day.
But if you do need to go out on Thanksgiving Day for some last minute shopping, not all hope is lost. A few stores will remain open, though hours may vary according to your location. Some of the top stores that will function are: CVS, Dollar General, ACME, Meijer, Kroger, Sears, Rite Aid, Whole Foods and Walgreens.
