A SLEW OF NATIONAL RETAILERS ARE MAKING A POINT OF THE FACT THAT THEY AREN’T GOING ALONG WITH THE TREND TO OPEN—AND OPEN EARLIER AND EARLIER—ON THANKSGIVING DAY.
Best Buy, Walmart, and Toys R Us have a history of opening earlier and earlier each year for Thanksgiving/Black Friday, and by the time they announce sale launch times for this year, it’s likely they’ll be welcoming deal-seeking shoppers sometime in the early afternoon of Thanksgiving, before the day’s first NFL game has even ended—and before the turkey is on the table in many American households. For that matter, many Walmarts are open 24/7 every day of the year including Thanksgiving (but not Christmas). Another contender for the title of biggest Thanksgiving Grinch is Kmart, which is opening at the depressingly early hour of 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day and will stay open for 42 hours in a row.
