Stores open/closed on Thanksgiving

The following is a list of stores that were closed or open on Thanksgiving day today.  While I’m not the biggest fan of the origins of Thanksgiving I am a big believer that people should have time to unwind especially on a day when families traditionally get together.  The only decent argument from consumers for opening on Thanksgiving is that these lower income retail workers need the extra work and in some cases get paid extra for the holiday.  My response?  These massive corporations should recognize the value in mentally healthy employees and just pay them for the day off… even the part timers.  The morale boost is worth it especially entering the busiest time of the year for these retailers.  I will be boycotting the stores open on Thanksgiving until at least January 1st so that their 4th quarter earnings doesn’t show a penny of my money.
