Remember when all stores closed on Thanksgiving. If you're under 35, you probably don't. But there was a time. Ask pawpaw.
But then people started to give each other beatdowns in the store (over an air fryer that's $10 off). This on the day we are supposed to give thanks for all that we have. But just before Covid (and especially during Covid), stores started doing earlier sales and gave their employees a break.
This year, Walmart and these other stores are closing for Thanksgiving.
- Bed Bath & Beyond
- Best Buy
- Dick's Sporting Goods
- Home Goods
- Sam's Club

Either they are just feeling generous and want their employees to enjoy time with families... or they don't have enough employees.
