That's what makes it fun!

There could be patterns based on type of industry or type of product sold, and the right answer will likely depend on a lot of external factors like the behavior of competitors, so this is the kind of question that will create a beautiful mess of conflicting answers.

Personally, I never shop on any holiday. If I am missing an ingredient for a Thanksgiving dish, I just don't make it. No one is going to die if I don't make it, after all!

Those who think stores should be closed for Thanksgiving or other holidays...just don't shop on those days.

No sweat.

I do think stores should be closed, especially on Thanksgiving. It is one of the very few national holidays we have. Store employees should have the day off, with pay.

Another liberal showing immense generosity with someone else's money. Color me unsurprised.

So glad retailers are listening. If you want to shop on Thanksgiving, shop online.

A few in my extended family who had jobs in retail had to work last year for the 1st time on Thanksgiving, until midnight. Ridiculous.

Happy Holidays
I don't think any of the stores listed in the link ever were open on Thanksgiving.

You've got some hard-hearted family values, there, don't you. Does your flag have dollar signs on it instead of stars? SMH

What would it really cost each consumer if store clerks were paid for a day off and prices were temporarily raised to make up the cost? $1.00?

You would begrudge people the chance to spend a national holiday with friends and family if it would cost you all of one dollar?

And conservatives say they are patriots! haha They don't know the meaning of the word.

It's that durn REI store. They started it. Next thing you know we won't be able to get a new TV in time for the big game.

This just blows. Now instead of exercise and hand to hand combat we'll just sit around eating pumpkin pie and cool whip and get fatter. Thanks a lot REI.

Leftists are opposed to shopping and work, so it's a twofer for them.
