List of more than 50 stores that will be closed Thanksgiving Day 2017

File: Black Friday

Several businesses have jumped on the trend to start Black Friday sales earlier, with some even opening on Thanksgiving.

It seems the decision to open on Thanksgiving is a controversial one.

WGN reported opponents argue the holiday should be for family and loved ones.

However, the rise of online shopping has left some retailers hurting for business.
