These stores say they’ll be closed on Thanksgiving 2019

Over the past several years, major retailers have expanded their Black Friday shopping hours and some are even open on Thanksgiving Day.

However, some don’t think stores should be open on the national holiday, so workers can spend time with their families. In fact, a survey conducted by BestBlackFriday.com found 72% of consumers polled believe businesses should be closed on Thanksgiving.
