Spend time with shoppers, or spend time with family? Even though Thanksgiving isn't for several weeks, several stores have already decided not to open on the holiday.

More than 75 retailers are expected to be closed on Nov. 23, according to the website BestBlackFriday.com.

Notable this year: Game Stop will open on Thanksgiving for the first time in years, according to Phil Dengler, who spoke with retailers to compile the list. The same goes for discount retailer Big Lots, he said, with the store citing support from employees and customers.

The main reason stores close on Thanksgiving? Giving employees and customers a break for family, said Dengler. And that's a decision most customers seem to back, too.

BestBlackFriday.com's online survey of 523 American adults, conducted in September, found 57% disliked the idea of stores opening on Thanksgiving. Just 16% thought of Thanksgiving openings favorably.
