I'm personally not a fan of shopping on Thanksgiving. I'd rather spend the day with my family. However, I know lots of people that use that day to shop. They might have lunch with family and friends, but then they head to the store. Since so many stores start their Black Friday sales on Thursday, people rush to get there as early as they can.

But this year, the list of stores that AREN'T open on Thanksgiving seems to be a bit longer than usual. I found the list on TheBlackFriday.com. And, that list includes several stores that are in our area. So, if you're planning on shopping on Thanksgiving, make sure that these stores on your list:

  • Academy Sports and Outdoors
  • Ace
  • Ashley Homestore
  • Bath & Body Works
  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • Belk
  • Best Buy
  • Burlington
  • Conn's
  • Foot Locker
  • GameStop
  • Harbor Freight Tools
  • H-E-B
  • Hobby Lobby
  • The Home Depot
  • JCPenney
  • Lowe's
  • Office Depot
  • Petsmart
  • Sam's Club
  • Staples
  • Target
  • Tractor Supply
  • Ulta Beauty
  • Walmart

The list is actually longer than the one you see, but I only included stores that we have around here.

So, there you have it. These stores won't be open on Thanksgiving Day. There will be no Black Friday deals starting on Thursday at them, so don't plan on that.

Have you heard of any other stores that won't be open on Thanksgiving? Be sure to let us know!
