A couple local businesses took a look at the Thanksgiving Day shopping craze...

And said 'No thanks.'

Allen's Superstore and Menards will both be closed for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

That's in stark contrast to some other retailers...

Walmart won't close their doors at all on Thanksgiving.

Neither will Russ's Market.

The owner of Allen's Market says she's been getting thank yous for her decision.

But she will be opening shop a couple hours earlier than usual on Black Friday.

"They have plenty of time to get out and buy and I think it's a little bit of a greed thing,” owner Georgene Allen said. “I think we should all enjoy Thanksgiving."

Menards will also be opening early on Black Friday...

At 6 a.m.
