With the exception of a few locations, Apple Stores are shuttered for the major holidays such as Easter, Christmas, and Thanksgiving. This Thanksgiving however, an additional nine stores will be open for the day of thanks.
The Apple Store at Fifth Avenue is open every day of the year, 24/7 and will be open on Thanksgiving as it was last year.
Other Apple Stores usually open on Thanksgiving are the Apple Store at The Forum Shops in Las Vegas, located in Caesars Palace, and the Royal Hawaiian – both located in very popular, tourist-heavy shopping areas.
According to changes in employee schedules, the additional stores that will be open on Thanksgiving Day include:
- West 14th Street in New York City
- Lincoln Road in Miami Beach
- San Francisco
- Pioneer Place in Portland Oregon
- The Grove in Los Angeles
- Third Street Promendade in Santa Monica
- Fashion Valley in San Diego
- Ala Moana in Honolulu.
While some Apple Stores will be opening at 3AM on Black Friday, most will open at 6AM, even if the mall they’re in is opening earlier.
