(KPLR) – Macy’s workers hoping to enjoy the day off for thanksgiving may be out of luck. Macy’s will open some stores for the first time on Thanksgiving.

This, according to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times.

The paper says several Macy’s locations in the Chicago area will open their doors at eight pm on turkey day.

Toys “R” Us led the “holiday creep” when it decided to open at nine pm on Thanksgiving night two years ago.

Last year, it pushed its opening to eight pm.

Retailers including Target, Walmart, Sears, and Kmart also all opened Thanksgiving night at either eight or nine pm last year.
