These stores haven’t made an official announcement yet, but they were open for at least part of the day on Thanksgiving before the pandemic, and a few of them even stayed open on Thanksgiving last year, too.
Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s bucked the Thanksgiving closure trend last year, keeping their doors open for socially distanced shopping.
Big Lots was open on Thanksgiving last year for holiday bargain hunters.
Like Bed Bath & Beyond, GameStop has flip-flopped over the years, but was open on Thanksgiving 2019 before closing in 2020.
JCPenney was closed last year but offered new Black Friday deals each weekend in November. It opened at 5 a.m. on Black Friday.
Macy’s was closed on Thanksgiving last year, but did make up for that with extended store hours during the rest of the week. It also provided curbside pickup on Thanksgiving.
Unlike sister chain Gap, Old Navy was open on Thanksgiving for shoppers in 2019, even staying open all night and into the morning on Black Friday. Last year, it opened at midnight on Black Friday.
