We’re still a few days away from Black Friday, but has already released a list of stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day ahead of the shopping day.  The website reached out to PR representatives of the stores over the past month, and so far, dozens have already announced they will be closed on Black Friday.

According to a new survey, only about a quarter of Americans prefer Thanksgiving openings while nearly half dislike them.
