Did you like stores being closed on Thanksgiving Day last year? The early news is more stores will be closed again in 2022. We are compiling a list of Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day and will add to it as we find more! Even though these stores are closed on Thanksgiving, there will still be Black Friday Deals!
Stores Closed Thanksgiving Day 2022
If you enjoy hanging out with family, enjoying your Thanksgiving® meal together, but then heading out to the stores to grab the best deals you will want to take note of this! The number of stores that are announcing changes to holiday shopping is growing each day. The latest announcement from Walmart is the first of a growing list of retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving. Here is the list that has been announced so far and will continue to update it.
Walmart Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day
Walmart and Sam’s Club were closed on Thanksgiving Day 2021 and Walmart has announced they will be closed in 2022. It seems like every year the Black Friday sales start earlier and Walmart has started in-store sales on Thanksgiving. That has allowed the retail giant the opportunity to attract shoppers with awesome sales before the traditional Black Friday sales.
Kohl’s Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day
Kohl’s has announced its stores will once again be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2022. Customers are encouraged to shop Kohls.com if they want to shop on Thanksgiving. I fully expect to see sales at Kohl’s to start earlier and to run through the holiday season!
Target Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day
In 2021, Target posted on their site “In fact, guests loved our new approach so much that we’ve already decided to carry one change forward (and we’re telling you here first): Our Target stores will be closed all day on Thanksgiving® Day 2022.” It seems like this change is here to stay. So you can expect Target to be closed on Thanksgiving 2022!
Most major retailers started their holiday sales earlier last year and we are expecting that again this year! Target also expanded its same-day pickup and delivery service which is really helpful! We will continue to bring you all the Black Friday Deals throughout this holiday season!
Academy Stores Closed Thanksgiving Day
Academy has not released their holiday store hours. But we fully expect them to be closed on Thanksgiving Day but will be open on Black Friday!
Best Buy Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day
The images of people camping out at their local Best Buy waiting for Thanksgiving Day deals will probably not happen this year. The decision hasn’t officially been made for Best Buy to be closed on Thanksgiving Day but it the announcement should come soon. They will be pushing consumers to BestBuy.com and then either use curbside pick-up or home delivery.
Dick’s Sporting Goods Stores Closed on Thanksgiving Day

Black Friday Shopping
It will be interesting to see if these changes are here to stay. These major retailers continue to say the feedback last year was really positive. The likely scenario is that more retailers will take their sales online and possibly offer them over multiple days (maybe even weeks). We will continue to bring you all the news as we find it. We are committed to bringing you all the in-store or online Black Friday Sales each year!
