These 21 CNY Stores Will Stay Closed Thanksgiving Day
These 21 CNY retailers have announced that they will not open on Thanksgiving, appearing to value family time more than sales.
The day after Thanksgiving - Black Friday - is the biggest shopping day of the year. So big, that some retailers were actually opening on Thanksgiving night to give shoppers a head start - at the expense of workers, who were forced to cut their own holidays short.
According to BestBlackFriday.com, a number of national chains have decided not to open on Thanksgiving, and many have a location right here in Central New York. Those stores include:
- A.C. Moore
- BJ’s Wholesale Club
- DSW – Designer Shoe Warehouse
- Harbor Freight
- Hobby Lobby
- Home Depot
- HomeGoods (which will be opening soon in the former Circuit City in New Hartford)
- JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores
- Office Depot and OfficeMax
- P.C. Richard & Son
- Party City
- Pier 1 Imports
- Raymour & Flanigan Furniture
- Sprint (Corporate & Dealer Owned Stores; Mall Kiosks May Open)
- TJ Maxx
- Tractor Supply
There are also some CNY retailers that are likely to be closed, but BestBlackFriday.com has not yet confirmed it for sure:
- Barnes & Noble
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Christmas Tree Shops
While many shoppers really enjoy Black Friday sales, there has been a backlash against the extension of the sales into the Thanksgiving holiday.
What do you think about Black Friday sales extending into the Thanksgiving holiday?
