Nearly 60 Stores Have Confirmed They Won’t Open on Thanksgiving Day

Couple Out Shopping

The above is a scene you won’t be seeing at many retailers on Thanksgiving, and I think that’s a very good thing. It’s a holiday that should be about spending time with family… not just for would-be shoppers but all those workers employed at the stores as well. Best Black Friday’s latest list shows 58 national retailers WON’T open their doors on turkey day. Almost half of them have stores in eastern Iowa. Here’s the national retailers with eastern Iowa stores that will be telling employees and shoppers to stay home on Thanksgiving Day 2017:
