Stores not open Thursday

Over the past five years or so, stores have seemed to embrace this shopping time by opening up earlier. However, there are also those stores who believe in allowing their employees the day off to enjoy the holiday.

They normally begin their sales on the day that Black Friday was originally penciled in for on the calendar: Friday.

A handful of popular stores will not open their doors for business on the Thanksgiving holiday. Among them will be Costco, Sam's Club (although this may vary by location), Office Depot, Office Max, Marshalls, Home Depot, Lowes, Hobby Lobby, Dillard's, hhgregg, and BJ's Wholesale Club.

Will online shopping win?

Another big trend which just seems commonplace now is online shopping. More and more people are opting to stay away from the crowds in the comfort of their homes. Instead of camping out for the latest deals, they try their luck with online sales and deals, which are just as plentiful.

It's always important to check the specifics of those online deals, though.

Some may be available on a time-limited basis, and some may not ship in time for Christmas Day, for those who are concerned with the timing of the item's arrival. Nonetheless, between Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday there will be plenty of deals to be had. Which way will you be shopping for your gifts this season?
