Stores & Shopping Malls Open on Thanksgving Day

Used to be, nearly all stores were closed on Thanksgiving Day. Black Friday began at 6:00AM the following day. But this year, several stores and shopping malls will start Black Friday early. These “big box” and mall stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day. Most will remain closed during the day but will open during the evening of Thanksgiving. Some locations have even moved their “Black Thursday Sale” start times up into the afternoon or even Thanksgiving morning.
