Should retailers close for Thanksgiving?
USA Today reported that Mall of America's 520 stores will have the option to stay open or not on Thanksgiving Day, but the Minneapolis Star Tribune wrote that most stores will most likely choose to remain close. And Americans are elated about this news!
Two years ago, Vox reported that working on Thanksgiving is nothing new and that asking for an entire ban on retail stores opened on Thanksgiving—like Bryce Covert at ThinkProgress suggested back then—is a bit ridiculous.
BestBlackFriday.com has a running list of all the retail stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and the list is extensive. Maybe this is the year that most retail stores will no longer be open on the holiday.
Side Hustle HQ created a list of ways to make money on Thanksgiving. The list includes extending Black Friday to Thanksgiving Day. Plus, families can plan the day around members who have to work... or just save them a plate. Nothing's wrong with making extra money during the holidays.
