Open or Closed? Here Are Stores’ Plans for Thanksgiving and Black Friday.

Many large retailers will be closed this Thanksgiving, continuing the practice that many stores adopted in 2020 and 2021 during the earlier phases of the pandemic.

Though some stores closed then because of labor shortages, Target announced last year that store closures on Thanksgiving would be permanent. Last month, Walmart’s chief executive said on the “Today” show that being open on Thanksgiving was “a thing of the past” for the company. Few major retail chains will be open on the holiday this year.

Despite a rocky time for the economy, with high inflation squeezing consumers, some big retailers, including Walmart and Home Depot, have reported earnings in recent weeks that show resiliency in the sector, and they are expecting a decent holiday season.

Many stores will be closed on Thursday and reopen on Friday. Here are the plans of some major retailers:
