More stores are closing on Thanksgiving Day to allow employees to spend time with their families. 

If you planned some home renovations or a phone upgrade for Thanksgiving Day, you're out of luck. More businesses across the country are closing their doors on the holiday to allow employees to spend time with their families.

And honestly, it makes sense. I always felt so bad for people that had to work on the big holidays, so I applaud retailers on their decision.

The following stores will NOT be open on Thanksgiving:

TJMAXX
Marshals 
PETCO
Lowes
H&M
The Home Depot
Crate & Barrel 
AT&T 
Costco 
PETSMART
IKEA 
Staples 
HomeGoods
