Here is a list of major stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2022

Instead of the usual frenzy of shopping on Thanksgiving to get a head start on Black Friday, many retailers are planning to close for Thanksgiving again this year to give employees the day off.

This will give retailers a chance to focus on online sales and will take a bit of the madness out of the holiday rush.

For the better part of a decade, stores like Macy’s, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and Kohl’s would open their doors on Thanksgiving. According to, this trend started in 2011 with midnight openings, and as the years went by, retailers opened earlier each year. In 2019, JCPenney opened at 2 PM ET on Thanksgiving Day and Walmart opened at 6 PM ET.

When COVID-19 hit in 2020, nearly all retailers announced they would close completely on Thanksgiving Day and hold low-key shopping events on Black Friday. This seems to be becoming the norm from now on as many stores have already announced they will close this year.

Shoppers can still do their shopping at home at sites like Walmart, Target, Amazon, Best Buy, and Kohls.
