    So glad to hear about stores being closed for Thanksgiving. Those hard-working employees deserve to enjoy their family time too. Now, if folks will use their words instead of their weapons to settle their disagreements it will be a wonderful holiday for all.

    @ Peaches, my thoughts exactly!

    Wonderful. Should have always been closed. Thank you for thinkingbofvyourcassociates!!!!

    It’s great they’re closed. The best deals are usually online anyway. I can see grocery stores being open for a bit early and honestly, the rest should be closed as well. There are convenience stores open if you’re desperate for something that can’t wait.

    Yeah that’s great….if everyone stays the heck home! Otherwise it’s not a day off for people who service places others want to go with their families. Think about that when you are traveling to Grandmas house – or Disney.

    Remember, these stores are open because there are customers who want to shop there. If customers stop being willing to shop, the demand for workers will go down. Don’t jump to judge the stores…
