  • Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many stores will be closing their doors on Thanksgiving day. 
  • No news on if Black Friday sales will be happening.
  • Get the list of store closures below.


Some businesses always stay closed on Thanksgiving while others ramp up their sales for the holiday and Black Friday. This year, lots of major retailers have decided to close doors on Thanksgiving to give their employees a break. For these stores, Black Friday will begin on Friday, not on Thanksgiving. Other stores are getting rid of Black Friday altogether due to the pandemic.

Here is a list of the top stores that will be closed. Enjoy your meal and wait until early Friday or another day to head out to get some of the deals. Likely, Black Friday will also look very different this year. Stores will generally get very crowded but they will have to maintain social distancing now.
