Big Change For Black Friday – Many Stores Will Be Closed This Year

Halloween is only weeks away, which means Thanksgiving…and Black Friday…are right around the corner.

In recent years retailers have been eyeing Thanksgiving as a money-making opportunity instead of a time to for families to make special memories.

Unless Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Sears have a change of heart they will remain committed to ringing up the extra holiday sales, requiring workers spend time on the sales floor instead of with their loved ones.

But all is not lost, many retailers are refusing to participate this year.

Here’s a list of some of the retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving 2017, courtesy of bestblackfriday.com:
