If you’re wondering how to plan your Black Friday shopping agenda, you might want to key an eye on which stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2018.
Last year’s list of closed stores on Thanksgiving was longer than the year prior, and 2018′s list of closed Thanksgiving stores seems to be on track to be even larger.
For many, it’s even become a family tradition for a shopping spree before the leftovers have barely cooled. Though many places like Target and Walmart want to take advantage of shoppers’ eagerness to snag deep discounts, it’s no surprise that many retailers have also receive backlash for their holiday-encroaching deals that seem to roll out earlier and earlier each year.
