Stores not open on Thanksgiving 2014

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 27, 2014

It’s great knowing the stores open on Thanksgiving, 2014, but what about those not opening and giving their employees some time off before the Black Friday sales? Today, we wanted to give Product Reviews readers a heads-up on what USA stores won’t be offering Thanksgiving day deals this year.

You might remember there was some controversy last year, especially in relation to Thanksgiving store opening times that clashed with dinner time. This is meant to be a time with family and friends, although it looks like most Black Friday 2014 sales will start once again before Friday, November 28th.

However, some want to give their employees more social working hours and stay closed on November 27th, during Thanksgiving 2014. The biggest names will be open on both Black Friday and Thanksgiving, so you won’t miss good deals on both days, although the stores below hope to receive good press for some kind of benefit.


List of stores not open on Thanksgiving 2014 – we’ve been informed that Costco, TJMaxx, Homegoods, Sierra Trading Post, DSW, American Girl, REI, Burlington, Dillard’s, and Marshalls won’t be opening for Thanksgiving day sales. If any of these stores change their plans, then we will let you know. The evidence arrived directly on their store locater pages and within tweets.

Do you think more stores should be closed on Thanksgiving, or is this your favorite day to shop for discounts? Personally, we respect the stores thinking about employees spending time with family and also understand why others want to be open for those that want to get early doorbusters. Have your say in the comments.

    I am very disgusted that stores are showing no family values or respect this Thanksgiving. I think it really stinks that they are opening on Thanksgiving day. Friday does not begin until midnight and no stores should open before midnight with Black Friday deals. Thanksgiving is a family day and it’s really sad that they are going to make their employee’s work on Thanksgiving day.

    There should be at least two holidays a year that are sacred! I personally will not do any Christmas shopping in stores that have decided to stay open for Thanksgiving!

    Greed! Thanksgiving has always been a wonderful family holiday. Some even travel long distances to be together. If some are forced to leave the family dinner to work it puts a damper on the day. The CEO’s, owners and their families will not be at work. They will be enjoying a family day in their mansions. There is nothing that sells on Thanksgiving that can’t be bought the day before or the day after. Shame on these stores. We will be shopping at the stores that put people first, and close on the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Screw the stores that are open on thanksgiving! If they’re opening on Thursday then there is no longer such a thing as Black Friday. So quit advertising it as such!
