Thanksgiving is a special time of year as family and friends gather to celebrate what they are thankful for and enjoy a good meal.

Through the years, Black Friday shopping has leaked into Thanksgiving Day, meaning retailers were staying open and employees were having to work instead of spending time with those they love.

With the coronavirus pandemic still in full swing across the U.S., many retailers have adjusted their Black Friday shopping hours and are choosing to stay closed on Thanksgiving Day this year.

Many retailers have shifted more deals online, which also helps employees get the day off to unwind before the holiday shopping season kicks into high gear.
