What better way to burn off the Thanksgiving dinner calories than a shopping trip? Many consumers will ditch their meals early to score some of the best sales of the season on Thursday, and they'll have plenty of stores to choose from.

Not everyone will open their doors. Costco, Sam’s Club, TJ Maxx, H&M, Marshalls, Nordstorm, Home Goods and Sierra Trading Post will all stay closed on Thursday, AOL reports. However, there will be plenty of other places that will let shoppers start looking for Christmas gifts.

Stores are opening even earlier than last year. While JC Penney waited until 5 p.m. in 2014, they’ll open at 3 p.m. in 2015. Their employees will work throughout the night into Black Friday, but many stores, like Radio Shack and Office Depot, are only open for a few hours on Thanksgiving.

The list below shows what chains will be open on Thanksgiving Day 2015, but remember that some regions will change their hours. Some will even close despite the national trend. Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Maine are legally forbidden from opening due to blue laws. Using the store locator links to see your local store’s hours.
