The list is growing of stores that will remain closed on Thanksgiving Day.
Seems like maybe 8-9 years ago, all these stores were opening on Thanksgiving, so people could blow off the traditional meal with their families and go shopping instead. Everyone had to get going on the holiday shopping. Unfortunately, that meant, that many had to work and could not take the holiday off. The past few years that has changed and many big companies are now saying, No. We are closing so that our employees are can have the day off with their families too.

Kohl’s joins a growing list of companies that have already started to announce holiday plans. Target and Best Buy have all said their stores will also be closed on Thanksgiving Day as well.
If you’re a fan of any of these places, you can still shop online and get a jump start on your holiday shopping.
