Macy’s Will Open Thanksgiving, Breaking With Tradition

After 155 years, the holidays have become too competitive to take a holiday

Philadelphia Business Journal reports Macy’s will be open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, breaking a 155-year tradition for the company. “But opening on such a major holiday could lead to backlash from workers. Over the past two years, workers at Target stores signed petitions and protested the opening. It remains to be seen whether Macy’s will see a similar backlash or if retailers opening on Thanksgiving night will become the norm.” Sometimes, we think America would be better off with a return of blue laws.
