Over the past few years, retail stores have increasingly closed for Thanksgiving Day amid the popularity of online and app shopping, as well as the COVID pandemic interruption of in-person holiday deals.

“Black Friday” deals have also seemed to appear earlier each year — and 2022 is no exception, with several big retail chains launching in early October.

Major supermarkets and chain pharmacies appear to again be the last stores “standing” for Turkey Day with any hours of operation on Thursday, Nov. 24.

The following list will be updated, as more stores share their holiday hours.
