Several local stores to close Thanksgiving Day

As the biggest shopping season of the year approaches, several stores are announcing plans to close on Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving, on Nov. 22 this year, has traditionally been a busy shopping holiday, as Black Friday sales began earlier and earlier each year.

But a recent survey from BestBlackFriday.com found that less than a quarter of Americans favor Thanksgiving openings and more than 47 percent dislike them.

Dozens of stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, according to BestBlackFriday.com, including Menards.

“A family-owned Midwestern company, Menards recognizes Thanksgiving as a special holiday to be celebrated with family and friends. Menards will once again continue our longstanding tradition of staying closed on Thanksgiving Day,” said Menards spokesman Jeff Abbott.
