Sears is doing something it's never done in its 124 year history. Stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

All Sears stores will stay open for a half day from 7 a.m. until noon.

The Hoffman Estates-based company hopes to cash in on shoppers looking for early bird savings.

The company said the decision follows numerous customer requests.

Sears plans to give shoppers a 5 percent extra discount for customers using their Sears credit card.
