Several retailers across the U.S. have announced that they will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Two of the biggest retailers in the nation, Walmart and Target, have already announced they've closed their doors on Thanksgiving this year.

Target said the reason they are closing on the holiday is because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The retail store said in a press release that they plan to extend holiday sale prices by several weeks.

Walmart President and CEO John Furner said the company wants its employees to enjoy the holiday with their loved ones.

Below is a list of other stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving 2020:

"To meet our customers’ changing lives this holiday, we’re enhancing the way we fulfill orders, from offering more convenient pick-up options at our stores to making sure orders arrive at the right time," the retailer said in a statement.
