UPDATE: The list now includes Target, Best Buy, Penney's, Macy's, and Walmart....
Traditionally, Macy's was one of the few stores that did not open on Thanksgiving, but this year there are only four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. That means less time to shop, and Macy's is hoping to make sure shoppers are planning to go there. Most stores (750 of their 800 locations) will open at 8pm and remain open more than 24 hours, until closing around 10pm on Black Friday. Massachusetts stores will be excluded and open after midnight because of the state's blue laws that prohibit stores from opening on Thanksgiving.
For the first time in its 155-year history, Macy's is joining the parade of retailers turning Thanksgiving night into a shopping bonanza. Stores will open at 8 p.m. on the holiday, four hours earlier than in previous years, the company said Monday.

"Black Friday is the biggest shopping event of the year and brings with it a level of fun and excitement to our customers around the nation," Peter Sachse, Macy's chief stores officer, said in a news release.
