The department store chain will embrace "Christmas creep," joining retailers such as Macy's and J.C. Penney in opening to early bird shoppers.
Kohl’s will not join a growing list of retailers keeping their stores locked on Thanksgiving Day. The department store chain announced its plans to welcome early bird holiday shoppers starting at 6 p.m. on Turkey Day.
Kohl’s is launching a five-day savings event beginning on Monday, Nov. 21, with exclusive Black Friday door-buster deals and other sales during the entire five days of the holiday week. Kohl’s customers can also score $15 in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent in store and online.

Macy’s recently announced it’s opening at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving this year — an hour earlier than in years past. J.C. Penney is welcoming shoppers at 3 p.m. that day, Nov. 24.
More retailers these days are bucking “Christmas creep,” though, and staying closed on Thanksgiving. A 2015 survey revealed that nearly 2 out of 3 consumers say they hate or dislike retailers being open on Thanksgiving.
Even the largest shopping mall in the U.S. — the Mall of America in Minnesota — is closing its operations on Turkey Day, though it’s giving its retailers the choice to open or close.
