We are roughly 6 weeks away from Thanksgiving Thursday and you do not want to be caught lacking.


Most of the closures are so that their employees are able to be home with their families and friends on the holiday as well.

So, if you are in Michigan, make sure you are prepared this Thanksgiving since your favorite major retailers and stores are going to be closed.
