GEORGIA — This year has been tough for everyone, and businesses have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. In recent years, the holiday shopping season has unofficially kicked off not on Black Friday, but on Thanksgiving itself — but this year many Georgia retailers are staying closed on the holiday.
Notable retail chains that have decided to give their employees the day off and stay closed on the holiday include Walmart and Target. However, some local stores and retail chains will be open on Thanksgiving.
Here's a roundup of retailers that will be open on Thanksgiving, which is Nov. 26 this year, courtesy of retail tracking website BestBlackFriday.com.
