Last year, I upset many of you when I went shopping on Thanksgiving evening. There are many who feel that it is unfair of stores to ask employees to come in and leave their families on Thanksgiving Day, and there have even been some protests and boycotts of stores who are opening on the holiday itself.

I also heard from many who did shop and got some great bargains, as well as from several store workers who insisted they were grateful for the extra holiday pay and went in voluntarily.

Who’s going to be open on Thanksgiving Day?

I’m not going to tell you what to do or when/where to shop. I think that is up to you. I always believe in making an informed decision, and so we have compiled a list here of who will be open and who will be closed on Thanksgiving.

This list is by no means complete. It simply represents our survey of some top retail chains around the country. Feel free to leave comments below if you know of other retailers who are going to be open or closed on Turkey Day. And don’t forget to vote on my poll to the left and make your voice heard!
