When it comes to the ever-blurrier line between Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, some retail stores are drawing a clear line in the sand.

The Black Friday holiday shopping frenzy has become even crazier in recent years, with many stores defying tradition and opening their doors on the Thanksgiving holiday itself, sacrificing the wellbeing of their employees in favor of a better bottom line. But some retailers are saying enough is enough. Here's the list of stores that will not be extending Black Friday shopping by being open on Thanksgiving Day.

And in an effort to stay alive after bankruptcy, Toys R Us will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving and stay open for 30 straight hours, until 11 p.m. Friday. Other stores advertising that they will be open on Thanksgiving include Target, Walmart, KMart, Kohl's, Macy's, Michaels, and Best Buy.
