These stores are saying no!

It seems that every year, stores have been opening up earlier and earlier for customers to get those insane Black Friday deals. Some stores are even bold enough to open up for customers starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day! However, there are some stores (even our favorite DIY stores!) putting their foot down and staying closed on this iconic holiday. Here’s why some stores have decided to stay closed on Thanksgiving.

Ace Hardware

BlackFriday.com and BestBlackFriday.com are the ultimate sources for customers when it comes to Black Friday news and deals. BestBlackFriday.com came out with the original list of store closures for the holiday. Ace Hardware is on the list, which is not surprising after last year’s closing as well. Ace Hardware’s President and CEO released a statement stating “the thought of luring our neighbors out of their homes in a frenzied hunt for doorbusters, away from the warmth of their family, friends and time of thanksgiving, is something we simply can’t rationalize.”

Costco

Costco has also made it very clear that stores will be closed up on Thanksgiving every single year in their Warehouse Hours & Holiday Closures. Back in 2014, a Costco spokesperson had said “our employees work especially hard during the holiday season and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Nothing more complicated than that.”
