It seems like the trend of retailers pushing holiday sales earlier and earlier is starting to reverse a little bit, with more stores announcing that they will NOT be open on Thanksgiving this year.

According to and there are a number of stores that will NOT be open on Thanksgiving (although most of them open early on Friday):

  • Costco
  • Ace Hardware
  • Lowe's
  • Hobby Lobby
  • Petco
  • Sam's Club
  • Bed Bath & Beyond

While not confirmed, these stores are predicted to be closed on Thanksgiving this year as well:

  • Dillard's
  • Home Depot
  • Petsmart
  • Harbor Freight

It would be awesome if everything expect essential services were closed on major holidays. Honestly, there are very few items shoppers can't wait one day to purchase.
