Black Friday, the popular shopping day after Thanksgiving, has started earlier, and earlier for the last several years.

It's become controversial as some feel that stores should be closed on Thanksgiving Day to allow employees to spend time with their loved ones. Many die-hard shoppers have also said that the stores starting their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving night takes away from the fun of it all.

BestBlackFriday.com has compiled a list of retailers who will be closed on Thanksgiving day, and we've added some Heartland stores as well.
