If you've never worked retail let me go ahead and tell you, it can be hell, especially during the holiday season.

You would think people would be extra nice and full of joy, but it's actually the exact opposite. People are stressed and you do not want to be in their path when something doesn't go as expected.

As the years pass, more and more stores are moving black Friday sales to Thanksgiving Day! A lot of corporations simply do not care if you planned to spend time with family or friends, and they'll insist that you work, or worse make it mandatory!

In a time where most stores will be open and promoting their black Friday sales, there are a few stores that have decided that their employees are more important. If you see one of your favorite stores on the list, don't be upset that they will not be open. Instead be thankful that those employees had the chance to spend some time with their loved ones. According to theblackfriday.com, the following stores will be closed on Thanksgiving, November 28.

  1. Army and Airforce Exchange  Service (AAFES)
