Survey: Fewer Americans support stores being open on Thanksgiving

By  | 

(11/07/2017) - Consider it a guilty pleasure.

A new Survey Monkey study says 57 percent of Americans don't think stores should open on Thanksgiving -- a day that's about family and turkey, not deals. Last year, 54 percent were against it.

But the survey also shows that just because people are against the Thanksgiving Day deals, it doesn't mean they aren't going to rush out and snatch them up. Some 12 percent of people who complain about stores being open on the holiday admit they'll still shop on Thanksgiving.

Here are the Thanksgiving and Black Friday hours announced by some retailers:

Toys R Us is opening its doors for 30 hours straight from Thanksgiving Day into Black Friday.

Target is offering shoppers and its workers a breather after holiday shopping on Thanksgiving. The retailers will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and then close at midnight. Its stores will then reopen at 6 a.m.

JCPenney will open at 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Its stores will stay open until 10 p.m. the following day. Online sale prices will start four days earlier on Nov. 19.

Sears stores open at 5 a.m. Friday, although some will be open on Thanksgiving.

Kohls stores will open at 5 p.m. Thursday for an early start to Black Friday.

Meijer stores all will be open for 24 hours on Thanksgiving and Black Friday with special deals both days.

Walmart will have most of its stores open for 24 hours on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Check each store's hours to make sure.
