With turkey day looming large this week, lots of places are closed on Thanksgiving Day, some on Friday as well.

Here’s a list of holiday closings for this week:

• Walmart: Regular business hours on Thanksgiving so you can get a jump on Black Friday.

The E-T was told by an employee that Walmart only closes on Christmas Day.

• H-E-B: Open until 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving day, regular business hours on Friday.

• Erath County offices: Closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, except for emergency services.

• City of Stephenville: Closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday.

• Banks: Closed on Thanksgiving, open with regular hours on Friday.

• Stephenville Empire Tribune: Offices closed on Thanksgiving, open Friday.

For other businesses and services, it's probably a good idea to call ahead before you jump in the car.

Happy Thanksgiving!
