Did You Know Some Retailers Were Shutting Their Doors On Thanksgiving?
Target will shut down its stores on Thanksgiving Day — and will keep doing so every year.
Retailers last year were forced to turn what had become a weekend shopping blitz into an extended event with holiday sales beginning as early as October to limit the number of people in stores during the pandemic. That forced shift during the holidays, however, turned out to be a good move.
As The New York Times reports, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and Aldi will likewise close on Thanksgiving. However, opening stores on the holiday was once common practice.
