What Stores Opening Thanksgiving Day 2010? The stores that are opening for Thanksgiving Day 2010 will get an early Black Friday start. Here's a list of some of the retail chains.

Stores have competed for years to offer the biggest deals at the most ungodly hours on Black Friday. First they opened at 5 a.m. Then they threw the doors open at midnight for shopping pajama parties. Now even Turkey Day is no longer off-limits.

Sears unveiled plans earlier this month to open from 7 a.m. to noon on Thanksgiving for the first time ever. The company said the short hours would allow employees to spend time with their families on the holidays. Perhaps the move should come as no surprise: Sister chain Kmart has long been one of the few outposts to ring up sales on Thanksgiving.

Toys 'R' Us will open its doors at 10 p.m. and offer early -- really early -- discounts, including a $50 gift card with every iPod Touch. The stores will stay open through Friday, with additional doorbusters starting at 5 a.m. for the sleepyheads.Meanwhile, Old Navy will once again be holding what it is calling "Gooblepalooza" at 800 stores on Thanksgiving.

Wal-Mart has called its decision to keep some of its stores open on Thanksgiving a practical move. In 2008, a Wal-Mart contract worker was trampled to death as the crowds surged through the doors when the store opened on Black Friday. The retailer hoped the extended hours would help ease the lines.
