Walmart will be open (the Supercenter stores, at least) but you cannot buy their specials until the advertised time. Target will NOT be open until 9pm Thanksgiving night. So it all differs by store.

It depends on the store. Most stores will close the night before and then reopen. Kmart will be open for awhile on Thanksgiving day and then they will close to restock and open again. Then there are some stores like Meijer here in the Ohio valley that will stay open the whole time.

Note that it also depends on the state---here in Massachusetts, by state law, retail stores may not open on Thanksgiving, and their employees may not work in the store on Thanksgiving. So some stores here don't open until 1 a.m. on Black Friday, because employees can't start working until after midnight to prepare the store for opening.

Not sure whether that would be considered retail or convenience store (I'm guessing retail). Here's how it usually goes on Thanksgiving in Massachusetts (cribbed this from the Boston Globe):

Retail stores: Closed.
Liquor stores: Closed.

Supermarkets: Closed.

Convenience stores: Open at owner’s discretion.

Taverns, bars: Open at owner’s discretion.

Banks: Closed.

Stock market: Closed.

Municipal, state, federal offices: Closed.

Libraries: Closed.

Schools: Closed.

Mail: Post offices closed; express delivery only.

wow. I really do think that law is a good idea though. My store is open our normal hours on Thanksgiving (7a-10p) but the pharmacy closes at 5 so if anyone needs prescriptions they are out of luck. I think we should close when the pharmacy closes.
