These stores will not be opening their doors on Thanksgiving this year

These days, it seems like Thanksgiving has become less about spending time with your family and enjoying some good food and more about getting the best deals and fighting with strangers over a discounted TV on Black Friday.

This year, nearly 20 stores have promised to not open their doors on Thanksgiving this year. Check out the list below:

  • Costco
  • Nordstrom
  • BJ’s
  • T.J. Maxx
  • Barnes and Noble
  • Home Depot
  • Pier 1 Imports
  • Jo-Ann Stores
  • GameStop
  • REI
  • Sam’s Club
  • Sierra Trading Post
  • H&M
  • Marshalls
  • Home Goods
  • Lowes
  • Crate and Barrel
  • Burlington Coat Factory
  • Staples
  • Patagonia

Now, can we get every store to jump on the “closed doors on Thanksgiving” bandwagon?
