List of retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving 2018

While many stores push the limits of Black Friday and offer store hours on Thanksgiving for bargain shoppers, some retailers have announced they will remain closed for the holiday. 

BJ's Wholesale Club is among the big name stores whose doors will be locked on November 22. The chain club recently announced it would be closed this Thanksgiving for the 12th consecutive year. 

Retailers began pushing the limits in 2010 when Sears was the first to announce they would open late on Thanksgiving and stay open overnight. Fellow stores like Walmart and Target soon followed the controversial decision, opening the floodgates to stores of all sizes to open on the holiday.
