Thanksgiving is a day we all give thanks and show how grateful we are for our friends and family. In the past, retailers used the day to kick off their huge Black Friday sales events. However, in recent years, those retailers have closed on Thanksgiving Day and used their online platforms for consumers, giving their employees time off with their families.

I think it's cool that these retailers close and give their employees the opportunity to watch football and grub down on turkey dinners with their families. Honestly, I think more businesses should follow suit.
