Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and along with tables full of food, that also means the arrival of the shopping holiday known as Black Friday.

In recent years, several stores have begun extending Black Friday into Thanksgiving Day itself, opening after the turkey has been finished to allow maximum potential shopping time. This year, that list is perhaps a bit smaller, as retailers have once again begun remaining closed on Thanksgiving before opening their doors on Black Friday.

Thanks to, customers can figure out which stores will be open on the holiday in order to properly plan their shopping schedule, though the site notes that some stores will wait until the release of their Black Friday flyer to confirm their holiday hours.
