If you plan on gobbling down turkey on Thanksgiving and hitting the stores to get an early jump on Black Friday deals, you may be disappointed. Fewer retailers are open than in years past.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, retailers flung open their doors on Thanksgiving, some before dessert was even on the table. Now many are giving their workers time off, at least into the early hours of Black Friday.
While there may be fewer to choose from, there are stores where you can shop on Thanksgiving, including the following nine:
