Some large retailers refuse to open on Thanksgiving
Many retailers will begin their “Black Friday” shopping on Thanksgiving this year, a trend that started a few years ago with more and more stores choosing to open on Thursday.
While many people like the idea of shopping on Thanksgiving, some retailers are getting some backlash.
With everyone talking about the stores that will be open on Thanksgiving, we thought we would highlight a few that will not be open on the holiday.
Costco Wholesale, Sam’s Club and BJ’s Wholesale will all be closed on Thanksgiving.
“Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season, and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families,” Paul Latham, the company’s vice president for membership and marketing, wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “Nothing more complicated than that.”
Ross Stores, TJ Maxx, Marshall’s and Burlington Coat Factory stores will also be closed on Thursday.
