With Black Friday around the corner, several large retailers are pulling back on the reins a little and closing their brick-and-mortar stores Thanksgiving Day.  

Instead of welcoming crowds of people starting on Thanksgiving for a jam-packed day of Black Friday shopping deals — which could post a health threat because of the pandemic — several companies have extended their holiday sales before or after Friday, Nov. 27. 

Home Depot announced in a press release Sept. 9, that it would hold a Black Friday savings season, lasting from early November to the end of December. Target made a similar statement, noting that it will take a different approach and offer deals for the entire month of November to help ensure a safe and stress-free shopping experience.
