More than 75 retailers are expected to remain closed on Thanksgiving this year, during one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year.

While plenty of retailers will stay open to draw in crowds early before Black Friday, retailers like Costco and Home Depot have already announced that they will stay closed on Nov. 23. Company officials have said they want employees — and shoppers — to be able to spend quality time with their family members on Thanksgiving.
