This is a repost of the blog article I wrote a couple of years ago regarding the awesomeness of Thanksgiving. Also, here’s a list of some of the stores that will NOT be open on Thanksgiving Day: Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond, BJ’s, Burlington Coat Factory, Costco, Crate & Barrel, Dillards, DSW Shoes, Gamestop, Home Depot, Home Goods, Jo Ann Fabrics, Lowe’s, Marshall’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, P.C. Rochard & Son, Pier One, Publix, Radio Shack, Staples, Sur La Table, and TJ Maxx. Special props to REI, which will be closed not only Thanksgiving Day but also on “Black Friday”.
