Stores open or closed on Thanksgiving

(WBAY) - The National Retail Federation expects holiday sales to be as much as 4 percent higher than last Christmas season, but shoppers are spreading out their hard-earned dollars.

To compete for the early birds, Kohl's is opening stores one hour earlier than it did last Thanksgiving, and GameStop is opening on Thanksgiving for the first time in four years.

But some stores are jumping off that bandwagon and staying closed until Black Friday this year, including Sears Hometown, Shoe Carnival and Stein Mart.

This is a list of national and regional chain stores, mostly compiled by Jones-Dengler Marketing's BestBlackFriday.com with some of our own additions from retailers and for stores in WBAY's viewing area. Check back for updates to this list.
