Should stores open on Thanksgiving or remain closed? The topic remains controversial. Traditionalists have called for boycotts of stores open on Thanksgiving because they want the holiday to remain devoted to family—and free of work and consumerism. On the other hand, millions love the idea of shopping before, after, or instead of a Thanksgiving feast.

So what stores are open on Thanksgiving 2017? Well, Target, Best Buy, and Walmart are among the many places with Thanksgiving hours, as are the major retailers listed below.

But dozens of national stores, including Costco, Dillard’s, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Marshall’s, Neiman Marcus, Orvis, Patagonia, and REI, will remain closed on Thanksgiving, as they have been for years. The Mall of America will also be closed for Thanksgiving 2017, marking back-to-back years that the huge retail hub will be largely shut on the holiday.

If you do want to go shopping on Turkey Day, a long list of retailers open on Thanksgiving are listed below, along with the store hours they’re open in most locations. (Some states have restrictions about store hours on major holidays, so double check locally to see if your nearest stores are open or closed on Thanksgiving.)

Also, bear in mind that many of the best deals for Thanksgiving and Black Friday are readily available online—sometimes even before they go live in stores—from Walmart, Target, Amazon, and others. So it’s perhaps wise to do some browsing on the Internet first to see if you really must leave your family on Thanksgiving in the quest for deals. Unless, of course, leaving your family on Thanksgiving is part of the reason you want to hit the mall in the first place!
