Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 24 in the U.S. this year, and if you are preparing a huge meal for your family and friends, you might need to do a little bit of last-minute shopping.
Many federal offices and public institutions are closed for the holiday, but fortunately, many stores are still open.
