Stay Closed on Thanksgiving Day

The Targets and Walmarts are becoming a bad influence on stores such as Michaels. Why is it necessary to be open from 4:00 pm to 11:00 PM on a day when I would like to enjoy that one day to be with my family at home. I feel that the "holidays" are so becoming just another "Corporate Biggie day " and the real meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas are lost. If it weren't for those holidays ,they would not be as successful as they are. So why not let the people that have given them a big help in their success, the full day off to enjoy what is important to them. Two days a year will not put these corporations in the "RED" . Places such as Hobby Lobby and Chick fil A are no where going broke. Let's hope these others follow THEIR example.

      Can't we agree that it would be nice to have at least a couple days when we (employees and customers) can spend with their families or at least spend a day without shopping. This whole thing about "customers keep shopping" is invalid if you had a bank that was open on Sundays at midnight I guarantee that someone would go deposit money at that time. If the bank isn't open is that person going to never deposit that money. NO they will wait till the bank is open.

      We're Americans, we set aside a day to give thanks to God in whom we trust for all the blessings we share. Let us not misdirect what is of true value--each other.
