These Apparel Retailers Will Be Closed on Thanksgiving

Does it seem like every store under the sun will be open on that most sacred of family holidays, Thanksgiving? Take heart, because a few good retailers are refusing to open their doors, instead allowing associates to be home around the table, and -- let's be honest -- aiming for higher sales on Black Friday that otherwise would be diluted by operating on Turkey Day.

Of the 22 major retailers that will be closed on Thanksgiving, 12 are in the apparel sector. Perhaps that's because customer-facing employees will need a good, hearty meal and day of rest before braving the inevitable Black Friday madness?
