List of stores already planning to close for Thanksgiving so workers can spend time with their families

National

Thanksgiving is still a few weeks away, and while many stores will have big sales that start on the holiday, some retailers will stay closed.

According to a survey from BestBlackFriday.com, 72% of those polled believe stores should stay closed on Thanksgiving so workers can spend time with their families on the holiday. The survey said 14% of respondents planned to shop on Thanksgiving while another 14% said stores should be open but didn’t plan to shop.

So far, the website has confirmed more than a dozen stores that will close for Thanksgiving:

  • Army and Airforce Exchange Service
  • Academy Sports and Outdoors
  • Ace Hardware
  • BJ’s (open for Black Friday at 7 a.m.)
  • Burlington Coat Factory (open for Black Friday at 7 a.m.)

BestBlackFriday.com also projects that several other big retailers—including Dillard’s, Nordstrom, IKEA, Home Depot, Petsmart and Office Depot/OfficeMax—would close for Thanksgiving. Those closures have not been confirmed yet, so the list will likely grow in the coming weeks.
