These stores are closed on Thanksgiving

These stores are closed on Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Today is meant to spend time with friends and family, gorging on a wonderful feast and then relaxing by the TV watching football while dozing in and out of that turkey coma for the rest of the evening.

At least that's the way it used to be. Nowadays people are having their get-togethers earlier in the day so they can hit the stores mid-afternoon when all of the early Black Friday sales get underway.

But some people are not happy about this trend. They would rather spend the entire Thanksgiving holiday with loved ones than battling that crazy lady in Aisle 3 for the last Instant Pot. Well good news, some retailers are sticking with tradition and will not be open on Thanksgiving.
