I posted recently about Walmart and Target being closed on Thanksgiving day. A few ore major retailers have joined the chorus. Looks like Thanksgiving dinner is on again, you can sit and relax without running to the store after swallowing the last piece of pie. Though, what it may look like this year is still up in the air.
Dick’s Sporting Goods
All Dick’s Sporting Goods store locations and distribution centers will be closed on Thanksgiving.
Dick’s Sporting Goods also announced that store and distribution center employees will continue to receive a 15% pay premium through the end of the year.
“We are so thankful to our teammates for their hard work and dedication,” Chairman and CEO Ed Stack said. “They have navigated this year with strength, commitment and care for each other and for our customers. We will continue to do all we can to support them and show our gratitude.”
Best Buy announced they will begin holiday shopping deals earlier amid the coronavirus pandemic. like Target stated earlier. The company said in a statement they will close their doors for the Thanksgiving holiday.
“We can all agree that, so far, 2020 has turned out differently than what we might have expected. And now, the holiday season at Best Buy, including Thanksgiving Day, is going to look different, too.”
Kohl’s is the latest retailer to announce they will be closed on Thanksgiving.
“As we move into the holiday season of this very unusual year, we are adapting our plans in response to changing customer expectations and behaviors,” said Michelle Gass, Kohl’s chief executive officer.
