Several stores began closing on Thanksgiving in 2020.

After many retailers saw the benefits of keeping their doors closed on Thanksgiving in 2020, they decided to implement the store closures the following year. Now, in 2022, not only have the same retailers decided to close on Thanksgiving, but the list of those that have followed suit has grown dramatically.

Although you won’t be able to shop at some of your favorite stores on Nov. 24, you’ll still be able to shop their e-commerce sites, some of which will be offering early Black Friday deals.
