Stores closed on Thanksgiving

If you get a job at one of these companies, then you don’t have to work on Grey Thursday (AKA Thanksgiving).

Stores closed on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is about family, friends, and all of the turkey and mashed potatoes you can stuff your face with…not squeezing in a quick bite from the food court during your break from working a double shift at the mall. (Although, if you would rather stuff your wallet instead of your face, a cornucopia of companies are hiring seasonal workers right now.)

However, for those of you who would rather spend the holiday in the company of loved ones, instead of at the company you work for, you can be thankful for the number of major retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving this year.

From clothing stores, including Burlington and TJX Companies, to grocery stores, such as Costco and Stein Mart, a bunch of companies are giving their employees the holiday off. Not to mention, for the second year in a row, America’s largest shopping mall, the Mall of America, will be closing for Thanksgiving. And if you want Black Friday off, in addition to Thanksgiving, don’t think it’s impossible—just look to REI and Outdoor Research.

With some help from and, Monster rounded up the stores that are closed on Thanksgiving and have open positions available right now. So before you give up your turkey dinner, check out the list below to see if you can get a job by Thanksgiving, without having to work on Thanksgiving.
