Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and of course so is Black Friday. A lot of the hoopla surrounding Black Friday seems to have fizzled lately, but some stores start Black Friday sales a day early on Thanksgiving Day.

Just in case you were thinking that after the feasting you were going to get an early start on Christmas shopping, there is a big list of stores that will honor Thanksgiving and be closed.

In my opinion, sometimes you just have to have that day when everything's closed so you can stay home without feeling like you're missing out. We've checked out an impressively long list of Lubbock stores closed on Thanksgiving Day for you, so now you know.
