R

Here's a list of every store that's announced plans to stay closed on Thursday, November 23, 2017, so their employees - and you - can enjoy Thanksgiving with your family.

Bookmark this post! We are updating the list as information becomes available. 

Our unofficial motto for Black Friday coverage is "show the work." With so much rumor, speculation, and misinformation swirling around Black Friday, you deserve certainty. Our list of stores that are staying closed on Thanksgiving is no exception. Unlike other lists you may have seen, we're providing a link to the source – along with a quote when it's available, so you know who to thank – so that you have more than just our word to go on. If we don't have confirmation, it stays in the "rumored or likely" column, even if we're 99.9% sure.

Maybe, Maybe Not:

For this section, the retailer has in years past confirmed that some, but not all, locations will be closed. Call your local store to see if they'll be open on Thanksgiving or not.

Unconfirmed, but likely to stay closed based on history of Thanksgiving closures:

Basically, if a store is in this section, they've never opened on Thanksgiving, or at the very least haven't done it in several years. So while no one on this part of the list is confirmed, we don't expect them to surprise us.
