Three cheers for any store manager that can resist being part of the national greed pigout.

I defend the right of any retailer to decide when to open but totally object to the government making the decision for them."Shoppers won't be lining up for Thanksgiving Day deals at stores in Rhode Island, Maine and Massachusetts. They can't."http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/11/27/21646544-thanksgiving-shopping-not-in-states-that-ban-it

I agree. May there be more of them. Asking employees to give up a national holiday just so people can trample each other shelling out greenbacks for stuff they'll decide later they don't even want. Greed is the right word.

Personally, I'll shop at those stores that give their employees Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Even though some of the Big Box retailers will be closed, many will open somewhere after 6pm tonight as per their webpages. And some of the smaller chain stores are open right now as I sip on my Starbucks and type this into my iPad as numerous stores are open and I'm watching customers entering stores without issue.

I agree; he should be commended. However, I hope he is near retirement because this move cannot do much for his career.

I don't know because the news coverage the stores are getting that are not opening and are allowing their staff to have the holiday off is good advertising.
