(Meredith) -- Some retailers will open their doors on Thanksgiving Day to give people an early start on their Black Friday shopping.
Best Buy and Walmart are among some of the stores that will open for all or part of Thursday, Nov. 28, according to Better Homes & Gardens. Keep in mind that some local branches may opt to close for the holiday, so it's best to contact the location nearest you before heading out. Hours will vary by location.
If you want to dine out instead of cooking an entire Thanksgiving feast, several restaurants will open for the holiday. Again, be sure to call and confirm before you hit the road! Hours will vary by location.
