Some retail employees will enjoy a much-needed respite on Thanksgiving (note: a national holiday) before the insanity of the holiday shopping season—but not Kohl's employees. On Thursday, the Wisconsin-based retailer announced it would stay open on Thanksgiving day, starting at 6 PM, as it has in past year.
Despite the backlash against Thanksgiving day shopping, a several major retailers have decided to open their doors on the holiday. Notably, outdoor outfitter REI won't open its doors or complete online orders on November 24, and the Mall of America—which was open on Thanksgiving for the last three years—will stay closed as well.
Here are the retailers who have said they'll stay open on Thanksgiving day, along with their opening times:
- Fossil: 9 P.M.
- J.C. Penney: 3 P.M.
- Kohl's: 6 P.M.
- Macy's: 5 P.M. Thanksgiving at some stores
- Modell's: 6 P.M.
- Shoe Carnival: 6 P.M.
- Toys 'R Us: 5P.M. at some stores
Money will continue to update this story as more stores announce their Thanksgiving day hours.
