    Good for those stores!!!!! No stores should open on Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter. Those holidays are for spending times with your loved ones. Shame on all of these stores who are opening on Thanksgiving for the big sales. I think that they should wait until Black Friday Morning. You are not being fair to your employees.

    Great to know that some retailers respect the fact that their employees deserve to spent the holiday with their families. Shame on the others who do not do the same.

    It is a shame that the list now has to be those who are closed instead of a list of those who are open.
    On the other hand, I would hope that the employees who work on Thanksgiving Day get double-time plus a half. If you're a greedy retailer, you better share the benefits. Instead, most retailers threaten your job for not willing to work or calling off on a holiday.
