Some Stores Bucking the New Thanksgiving Trend

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_1252d674b1.jpgVolker Kreinacke/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- Not all stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day, contrary to what you might have heard. There has been somewhat of a backlash, given the number of retailers that will swing open their doors this Thursday so shoppers can get a jump on Black Friday sales. It's not just those working at the stores who feel put out by the development but also the customers who the retailers hope to attract, despite the fact that an estimated 35 million Americans either went to a store or shopped online last Thanksgiving Day.

Stores that won't be open this Thursday include: BJs, Costco, Dillard's, Home Depot, Marshalls, Nordstrom and T.J. Maxx.

Doreen Thompson, a spokeswoman for TJX, which owns the T.J. Maxx and Marshalls brands, said, "We feel so strongly about our employees spending Thanksgiving with their families."
