What stores open on Thanksgiving day? Walmart, Target among those open before Black Friday

Closed Thanksgiving stores in 2017

While Black Friday may be known for deals, some stores are starting the frenzied shopping early by opening their doors on Thanksgiving Day. 

Big-box stores like Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Big Lots are opening their doors to the masses on Thanksgiving, according to  BestBlackFriday.com's annual list of when stores open on Thanksgiving.

Over the past few years, some stores and malls have made the decision to close on the holiday. BestBlackFriday.com's online survey of 523 American adults, conducted in September, found 57% disliked the idea of stores opening on Thanksgiving and just 16% thought of Thanksgiving openings favorably. Let the naysayers be damned, these stores are opening anyway.
