It's hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner, meaning holiday shopping is, too. While plenty of stores make the questionable decision to open on Thanksgiving for early Black Friday shopping, many retailers still plan on staying closed for the holiday. I am personally grateful that employees of these QC stores will have the day off to spend with their families.

According to WGN, chain stores that will be closed that day include:

  • DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse
  • Guitar Center
  • Hobby Lobby
  • Marshall's
  • Harbor Freight
  • Lowe's
  • Mattress Firm
  • Office Depot
  • Party City
  • Petco
  • Petsmart
  • Pier One Imports
  • Sam's Club
  • Staples
  • TJ Maxx
  • Von Maur

These are just QC corporate chains that will be closed, but we know many local businesses will also make that decision as the holiday draws closer. We'll keep this list updated, and please let us know if you're aware of other stores that will be closed that day.
