What stores are open and closed on Thanksgiving Day 2019?

Some will not open on Thanksgiving, but many will.

While Minnesotans sit down with their families and prepare for their Thanksgiving feasts, spare a thought for the workers who are preparing to open their doors for holiday shoppers.

Thanksgiving marks the start of the Black Friday holiday shopping period, with some retailers opening increasingly early on Thanksgiving itself to take advantage of early shoppers.

But there are still those who choose to stay closed until Black Friday itself.
