Each year we hear of more and more stores that are opening on Thanksgiving Day, depriving their employees of time with their families. But what often goes unmentioned are the stores that refuse to open on that day. Instead they give their employees a day of rest and put people over profits. Below are eighteen such stores. If you know of any other stores, let us know in the comments. And if any of these eighteen stores have changed their policies and are in fact opening on Thanksgiving Day this year, please let us know and we will remove them from the list.

1. BARNES & NOBLE

2. BED, BATH & BEYOND

3. BJ'S WHOLESALE CLUB

4. COSTCO

5. CRATE & BARREL

6. DILLARDS

7. HOME DEPOT

8. HOME GOODS

9. JO-ANN FABRICS

10. LOWES

11. MARSHALLS

12. NORDSTROM
