Chicago Area Stores CLOSED on Thanksgiving Day

There's two types of people: those who shop on Thanksgiving & those who HATE even the idea of it!

If you have to travel for Thanksgiving, then you can appreciate that barista that came to work that morning so you can get caffeine for your long day (with lots of family you rarely see). But you probably also feel a little pang of sadness for the worker too. Thanksgiving is a time for family & friends... and food... and eventually food coma. Having to work definitely cramps that style. 

Although it seems the Christmas decorations come out earlier every single year, there are some stores pushing back & standing up for Thanksgiving. First the turkey, then the tree. Here's a list of Chicago area stores you won't see open this Thanksgiving:
