Thanksgiving is November 23 this year. That means Black Friday is November 24. And some retailers are looking to keep those two days separate.

A trend has begun where some retailers will start their Black Friday sales on the night of Thanksgiving, and open in the evening and stay open all night. It started with Sears in 2010, moved to Walmart in 2011, and then Target in 2012.

Opening on Thanksgiving is controversial. Some states have enacted so-called "blue laws" which prohibit a store from opening on Thanksgiving, creating a rush at midnight. Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Maine have enacted such legislation.

Some retailers, however, are looking to buck that trend in a meaningful way. 

Here are the retailers confirmed to be closed on Thanksgiving, according to data gathered by
