In the past, on Thanksgiving, we’ve been able to count on some stores to be open to not only run and get last minute things, but to get pre-Black Friday sales.

Well, this year, things will look a lot different. Not only will Walmart be closed for Thanksgiving, but so will Target. I’m totally ok with this. I try to ensure that I plan for big meals anyway because the stores just might be closed. So make sure you’ve got everything that you need days before to ensure that you’re prepared. I’m happy because the employees of these stores should be able to spend the Holiday with their family.
