Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and if you're looking to get early Black Friday deals after your big meal, you might want to know which stores will be closed before you venture out.

As you know, there are stores that will be open on Thanksgiving Day, offering great discounts and sales. Personally, I have never been a fan of shopping on Thanksgiving. After eating myself into a food coma, then rushing to the store to get early deals only to wait in long lines, deal with crazy drivers, trying to find a parking spot, and finally getting inside the store only to find out what I wanted was sold out is entirely too much stress for me. I'll just shop online in my pajamas from the comfort of my own home. However, many will still be out shopping on Thanksgiving. That being said, some stores have already announced that they will not be open on Thanksgiving this year. I applaud these stores for giving their employees the day off to spend with friends and family like Thanksgiving is intended.
