Major Stores Stay Away from Retail Shopping on Thanksgiving

By  USDR.

Traditionally, stores remain closed on Thanksgiving Day, kicking off the holiday shopping season on Black Friday — the biggest shopping day of the year — by offering shoppers steep discounts.   In an effort to stretch the holiday shopping season as much as possible, many stores have announced plans to open on Thanksgiving Day.  However, not all stores are conforming to this trend.  In keeping with the older tradition, a number of stores will deliberately remain closed on Thanksgiving, forcing eager shoppers to wait until Black Friday to take advantage of sales.  24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 9 largest retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day  2016.
