Increased online shopping has reduced the need for stores to be open on the holiday. Some stores said they wanted employees to be able to spend time with friends and family.

“As an appreciation of all the hard work our employees do over the course of the year, we have always closed on Thanksgiving to give our employees a chance to relax and enjoy time with their families,” Costco told BestBlackFriday.com.

The number of stores closed on Thanksgiving might increase as the holiday nears.
