Black Friday and Thanksgiving are closer than you think, with the latter only 50 days away.

That means shopping and nowadays that means shopping on Thanksgiving instead of Black Friday.

It doesn’t matter how you really feel about the Black Friday experience, retailers understand that people are ready to get their holiday shopping on, and many don’t want to wait.

That’s why, despite a backlash from outraged people believing Thanksgiving needs to be a sacred day of zero shopping many stores are open.

However, there are a bunch of stores that aren’t open on Thanksgiving and thanks to Best Black Friday, here’s a list of all the places that are shuttered on Turkey Day.

  • Blain’s Farm and Fleet
  • Burlington
  • DSW – Designer Shoe Warehouse
  • Guitar Center
  • H&M
  • Half Price Books
  • Hobby Lobby
