Staying open for business on Thanksgiving Day has meant good business for some companies and publicity nightmares for others.

A record 189.6 American consumers shopped throughout the 2019 Thanksgiving weekend, including Cyber Monday, according to the National Retail Federation. The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is still a prime time for shoppers, as more retailers have taken their business online to compete with Amazon and other online stores.

Keep reading to get the list of stores that will be open or closed this Nov. 26 and Nov. 27, and find out why you shouldn’t spend all of your holiday budget on Black Friday.
