Thanksgiving hours: Stores that will be open, closed

For many retailers, closing on Thanksgiving and giving workers extra time with their families before the holiday rush is becoming more of a tradition. It’s an about-face from pre-pandemic days when retailers were staying open on Thanksgiving to capitalize on Black Friday shopping.

However, even as the global health crisis started to subside, closing on Thanksgiving started to become a trend among major retailers like Walmart, who wanted to give their employees extra time off.

As early as October, the nation’s largest retailer announced that it will close all its stores on Thanksgiving Day for the third consecutive year. Walmart US CEO John Furner also said during an interview that staying open on the holiday would be “a thing of the past.”

Many major stores have followed suit, announcing closures of their own. However, some stores and grocers will still be open on Thanksgiving for limited hours in order to cater to last-minute shoppers.
