Macy’s will open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, according to a web site that follows — and tries to predict — the Black Friday plans of national department stores.

BestBlackFriday.com said Macy’s opened at 5 p.m. last year on Thanksgiving, and the store opened at 6 p.m. that day in 2015 and 2014.

Macy’s has locations at the Dayton Mall in Miami Twp. and the Mall at Fairfield Commons in Beavercreek.
