I feel for major holidays places should be closed. That being said on the news they brought up how people in different fields have always worked on Thanksgiving. Such as at the airport, gas stations, hotels. There is not talk about how unfair it is for them because it has been going on for so long.
I have a feeling one day in the future most stores will be open and older people will be telling stories how stores used to close. Kind of like when my mom tells me stories about stores being closed on Sunday.

Due to the size of the US and the distance people travel, the service industry is always open. As to your second paragraph most people have become secular and thus people treat it more a paid day off rather than a celebration.

If you want to see what Blue Laws really look like country wide then fly to Israel where every retailer is closed from Sundown Friday to Sundown Saturday, Airports are closed, gas stations are computer controlled, etc.

Hotels will always be open, but the amenities offered would be limited.
