Wondering what stores will be open and what stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year? Looks like the pendulum is swinging back to the good ol' days, as more and more stores are saying they will be closed this Thanksgiving Day and will leave the Black Friday deals to Black Friday.  Today Target made a big announcement. 

Target will be closed this Thanksgiving Day and now every Thanksgiving Day in years to come.

According to KARK.com, the Target CEO Brian Cornel was quoted in a letter to employees stating;

 “What started as a temporary measure driven by the pandemic is now our new standard — one that recognizes our ability to deliver on our guests’ holiday wishes both within and well beyond store hours,”

Here is a list of the stores that have stated they will be open on Thanksgiving Day.
