Walmart, which typically offers Black Friday deals beginning on Thanksgiving evening, revealed they have decided to close to give employees time with their families after a “trying year.”
“Our best ideas come from our associates, and this year we have decided to close our stores on Thanksgiving Day – November 26. We know it’s been a trying year, and you’ve stepped up. We want you to enjoy the day at home with your loved ones,” Walmart’s CEO John Furner said in a press release.
According to Yahoo! Life, other grocery stores opting to stay closed this Thanksgiving include Target, Aldi, Winn Dixie, Sam’s Club, Costco, Publix, and Trader Joe’s.
