(Newser) – There are plenty of stores ready to compete with Grandma's pumpkin pie tomorrow, but a handful are holding back. 24/7 Wall St. rounds up those that won't be participating in the mayhem of Thanksgiving Day shopping, and notes they may even see a jump in sales on Friday from those who support the idea of a quiet holiday at home.

  1. Costco
  2. Nordstrom
  3. TJ Maxx
  4. Marshalls
  5. Burlington Coat Factory
