Select national retailers have announced that they will be closed on Thanksgiving this year, the Kansas City Star reports.
Walmart and Sam’s Club made the initial announcement last week.
Typically these stores kick off their Black Friday sales on the evening of Thanksgiving. They decided to close in observance of the holiday in order to allow their employees to be home with their families.
Other stores that will be closed include Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy and Kohl’s.
