Here’s The List Of Stores Closing On Thanksgiving To Allow Employees To Be With Their Families


Are you ready to save big on Christmas presents this year? Or if you celebrate another holiday this winter, you might be purchasing gifts for that. Whatever reason you find to give away presents at the end of 2017, you probably want a deal. Then you are among the millions of Americans who go out shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday to get the best deals in retail. But before you go out and seize the best deals available to consumers, you should know that some major retailers are not planning on opening their doors this Thanksgiving. The reason? They hope to give their employees a nice break from the job and an opportunity to spend it with their loved ones instead.
Stein Mart was one of the first major retailers to announce that they would no longer be open during Thanksgiving. They want to give their employees a break and time to be with their families on the national holiday. Although they had been open on Thanksgiving during the last three years straight, this year they decided to do right by their employees and close up shop. But they’ll be open for Black Friday deals the next morning – so get out bright and early to snag some of the best deals of the year.

“For 2017 we have chosen to return to our Stein Mart family tradition of not opening our stores on Thanksgiving Day. We are very pleased to give back this important time to our associates,” said Hunt Hawkins, chief executive officer in a press release. “For customers who would like to shop at Stein Mart on Thanksgiving Day, they can enjoy a great shopping experience at”
This year Thanksgiving falls on Thursday November 23. Black Friday is the next day the 24th and Cyber Monday is November 27. That was the biggest day in e-commerce history in 2016. Cyber Monday surpassed Black Friday online sales by a whopping $110 million. Good deals about the days after Thanksgiving. So if you like stores wake up early and go to the great deals going on at the locations. Or shop from home online during Cyber Monday to find steals from thousands of retailers.
