America has a problem.  We can't help but get way too excited for the upcoming holidays WAY too far in advance.  It isn't even Halloween yet and Thanksgiving is already in the news.  So, what about Thanksgiving?

There is a huge debate every year about the concept of Black Friday.  The holiday was established all in good fun, get some deals, wait in a line, maybe get a huge TV for not as cheap as you hoped.  But nowadays, Black Friday is a SPORT.  It's like a game to people.  So for all you shopaholics out there, here is a list of stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving, aka no skipping family dinner to camp out in the cold, oh darn.

Major retailers include -

  • Costco
  • Home Depot
  • Marshall's
  • TJ Maxx
  • AT&T
  • Blain's Farm and Fleet
  • Burlington
  • Crate and Barrel
  • H&M
  • Hobby Lobby
  • Home Goods
  • IKEA
  • Lowe's
  • Mattress Firm
  • Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack
  • Petco
  • Petsmart
  • Pier 1 Imports
  • Sam's Club
  • Staples
  • The Container Store
  • And more

The full list can be found here.

If this isn't a hint enough at the true meaning of Thanksgiving, please spend your night with your family instead of waiting outside of target in the freezing cold.  I promise the deals aren't worth it.
