Many major retail chains have announced they will be closed on Turkey Day. Find out who is on the list.

The nation’s largest shopping mall recently made headlines by announcing it will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. However, the Mall of America is not alone.

Thanksgiving and Black Friday remain more than a month away, falling on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25 this year. But many major retail chains already have announced they will be closed on Turkey Day.

Hhgregg, for example, recently touted itself as “the first major electronics retailer to announce Thanksgiving Day closure.” In the chain’s 220 brick-and-mortar stores, Black Friday 2016 will commence at 7 a.m. on the day after Thanksgiving.

That’s a contrast with last year, when hhgregg welcomed early Black Friday shoppers from 4 p.m. to midnight on Thanksgiving Day.

Bob Riesbeck, president and chief executive of hhgregg, said of the change this year:

“It’s important to us that our associates are able to be home with their families on Thanksgiving, and we are encouraging our customers to do the same – knowing great deals will be available online, on Black Friday and through the weekend.”

Other retailers that will close on Thanksgiving have echoed that emphasis on employees and their families.

Troy Rice, chief operating officer of North America for Office Depot, said last week:

“As we evaluated our store hours for this holiday and weighed the business and personal considerations, we decided it was best to provide our associates with the day off to spend time with family and friends by closing our retail stores on Thanksgiving Day.”

This year, Office Depot’s website will kick-start the retailer’s Black Friday sales at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, and Office Depot stores will open at 6 a.m. Friday.

TheBlackFriday.com, a website devoted to the retail holiday, recently reported on other retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving. They include:

  • A.C. Moore
  • BJ’s
  • Burlington Coat Factory
  • Costco
  • Sam’s Club
  • Harbor Freight Tools
  • Home Depot
  • Home Goods
  • Ikea
  • Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores
  • Lowe’s
  • Marshalls
  • Menards
  • Neiman Marcus
  • Nordstrom
  • Nordstrom Rack
  • Office Max
  • Petco
  • Petsmart
  • Pier 1 Imports
  • T.J. Maxx

Speaking of Harbor Freight, the hardware store recently became the first retailer whose 2016 Black Friday ad has been leaked, according to TheBlackFriday.com.
