Opportunities to shop on Thanksgiving Day this year will be significantly reduced from recent years as the COVID-19 pandemic keeps people away from big box stores.
Last year, more than a dozen big box retailers opened at some point on Thanksgiving. This year, only a handful will be open.
More retailers are closing on Thanksgiving and spreading sales out for days and weeks, rather than hours.
As per guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, shoppers are being encouraged to avoid shopping in big clusters this year. Many retailers will still open early on Black Friday if you plan to shop brick and mortar stores.
