My husband is a retail manager so you can guess where I fall on the subject.  Now that it is officially fall, Thanksgiving and holiday shopping season is right around the corner.  I did some digging and found out what big box stores are going to be closed on Thanksgiving this year and which ones will still be open.

Last year just about every store was closed to the pandemic. Online shopping or delivery services were encouraged but now that vaccines are dong their thing I was wondering, are we going to over-compensate? Are more major retailers going to be open on Thanksgiving to make up for lost time?

It turns out many stores will remain closed on Thanksgiving in 2021 but not all of them...I put together this list for you (I'll add to it as I hear of more).

Here are some major retailers and where they stand of staying open or closed for Thanksgiving 2021:
