As the biggest shopping season of the year approaches, several stores are announcing plans to close on Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving, on Nov. 22 this year, has traditionally been a busy shopping holiday, as Black Friday sales began earlier and earlier each year.

But a recent survey from BestBlackFriday.com found that less than a quarter of Americans favor Thanksgiving openings and more than 47 percent dislike them.

Dozens of stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, according to BestBlackFriday.com, including Menards.

“A family-owned Midwestern company, Menards recognizes Thanksgiving as a special holiday to be celebrated with family and friends. Menards will once again continue our longstanding tradition of staying closed on Thanksgiving Day,” said Menards spokesman Jeff Abbott.
