10 Stores Closed on Thanksgiving

4. Nordstrom

Seattle-based Nordstrom is one of the nation’s largest retailers, with more than $12 billion in U.S. sales in 2013. The company’s sales improved substantially in recent years. Nordstrom has reported four consecutive fiscal years of same-store sales growth — the metric tracks sales at stores open at least 12 months. Also, between 2009 and 2013, sales per square foot rose from $368 to $474. While Nordstrom will not look to boost its top line by opening on Thanksgiving this year, a company’s spokesperson told 24/7 Wall St. that “[We] will have a small number of employees helping to take care of customers in our customer contact center as well as at Nordstrom Bank to take care of our cardholders.”

5. The TJX Companies

TJX, whose store brands include T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods, will remain closed this Thanksgiving. TJX spokesperson Doreen Thompson wrote in an email to 24/7 Wall St., “We are pleased to give our Associates the time to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.” However, like many other major retailers closed on Thanksgiving, TJX’s stores still have big plans for Black Friday. Thompson’s email also noted that the majority of the company’s stores would open Friday at 7 a.m., with 25 Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores scheduled to open that morning at 5 a.m.

6. The Home Depot

Home Depot notes on its website that its stores are closed on two nationally recognized holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Unlike most retailers, spring is actually Home Depot’s busiest season. Last spring, Home Depot hired some 80,000 seasonal workers to prepare for the surge in shoppers. Still, like most major retailers, the home improvement giant will be offering Black Friday deals. In recent months, Home Depot has had to deal with the fallout from a data breach that may have compromised roughly 56 million customer payment cards as well as 53 million emails.
