Thanksgiving is not only a day to spend with family, but over the past few years, it’s also has become a day to spend shopping. But this year, things are changing. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, a ton of stores will not be opening their doors on Thanksgiving Day.

Here’s a full list of stores confirmed to be closed on Thanksgiving thus far: 

  • Academy Sports and Outdoors
  • Bath & Body Works
  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • Best Buy
  • BJ’s
  • Boscov’s
  • Costco
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods
  • Foot Locker
  • GameStop
  • The Home Depot
  • JCPenney
  • Kohl’s
  • Lamps Plus
  • Macy’s
  • Office Depot/OfficeMax
  • REI
  • Simon Property Group
  • Target
  • Ulta
  • Under Armour
  • The Outlet Resource Group
  • Walmart
  • Williams-Sonoma

Personally, I find it disgusting that stores were opening up at 5 pm on Thanksgiving Day anyway. I mean it wasn’t even Friday, so how could it be a Black Friday deal? I obviously am not too upset that these stores will be closed, but I do think it’s sad that we had to have a world pandemic for things to finally change.
