More stores will be closed on Thanksgiving than open, as the majority of large retailers continue the trend for the fourth year in a row.

Zoom out: COVID ended the traditional holiday shopping season and pushed more deals online to reduce crowds in stores, a tradition retailers have continued.

  • Before 2020, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Macy’s and JCPenney were on the long list of stores that kicked off in-person Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving before most ate dinner.

Worth noting: Most Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island stores will be closed on Thanksgiving because of state laws.
