Gray Thursday is the new Black Friday: Stores open on Thanksgiving

(WTVM) -

For consumers looking for more time to shop and catch those holiday deals, several stores are now open on Thanksgiving Day.

The trend is called Gray Thursday.

News Leader Nine was at Big Kmart on Macon Rd. Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28, with shoppers who had been standing in line, braving the cold since 4 a.m. Employees passed out deal vouchers, then opened the doors.

Shopper Edith Strickland says she can't handle the Black Friday traffic, so shopping a day earlier is perfect.

"It was worth it, you know. The crowd was real nice and calm, you know and stuff. It wasn't like Black Friday, I won't come out on Black Friday," says Strickland.

Here's a list of stores open on Thanksgiving for the people who want to ditch the stuffing and start shopping:

Big Kmart

Old navy

Gap

JcPenny

Kohl's

Macy's

Walmart

Target

Toys-R-Us

Best Buy

There are a wide variety of options, so whether you are shopping for clothes, toys, or electronics, there are plenty of options to choose from.
