The list of retailers who will be open on Thanksgiving Day just got longer.
J.C. Penney on Tuesday said that it will unlock its doors two hours earlier this year, at 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. It will remain open until 10 p.m. Black Friday.
Kohl's also said that it will be open that Thursday, with doors once again opening at 6 p.m.
And Best Buy said that nearly 1,000 of its stores will once again open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving, nearly all of which will remain open until 1 a.m. Friday. They will then close for seven hours before reopening for a second round of doorbusters, at 8 a.m. on Black Friday.
The news comes one day after Target announced that its stores would open at 6 p.m. Thursday, with locations remaining open until 11 p.m. or midnight Friday evening.
And on Sunday, Toys R Us said that for the third-straight year, it will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Its stores will then stay open until 11 p.m. Black Friday.
Those are far from the only retailers that will be open on Thanksgiving, despite indications early in the season that things might be a little more tame this year. For example, Sears last month said that for the second-straight year, it will open its doors at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Its stores will remain open until 2 a.m., then close for three hours before reopening at 5 a.m. on Black Friday.
Macy's, Belk and Sports Authority have also said bargain-hungry shoppers will once again be able to scoop up Black Friday deals at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. At HH Gregg, stores will be open from 4 p.m. until midnight. And Dollar General has said that it will be open on Thanksgiving, at 7 a.m.
