Thanksgiving Business Hours 2021: What’s Open, Closed In Evanston?

EVANSTON, IL – Need a break from eating Thanksgiving turkey, watching football, and washing the dishes? Here’s an idea: gather the family together and head out for an hour or two to do some Christmas shopping at select Evanston stores.

While the majority of stores will be closed on November 25th, some will be open to shoppers looking for a moment of calm amid the Turkey Day celebrations, or hoping to speed up their Black Friday shopping.

However, don’t expect all of your favorite traders to be open this year.

In June, retail giant Walmart announced that it would close all stores on Thanksgiving Day this year.

Walmart’s decision follows a similar decision by competitor Target, who announced in January that shops would also close for that Thanksgiving festival.

Two giant retailers, Walmart and Target, are among many companies that have been criticized for staying open on Thanksgiving and preventing workers from spending the holidays with their families. In response, a growing number of retailers, including Costco, Lowe’s, and Hobby Lobby, have started closing stores on the holidays.
