Thanksgiving day hours are the hours a store is open on
Thanksgiving. They vary from store to store. Some stores may be
open their regular hours, some may have shorter hours, and some may
not be open at all on Thanksgiving.
In 2008, select stores were open as a trial to see if it was
worth having the store open on Thanksgiving. It was a success for
the company and starting in 2009 all US stores were open on
Thanksgiving Day, with a different set of store hours.
8-5 on Thanksgiving and they have ask 2400 stores to stay open
this Christmas to see how it goes. They did the same thing with
Easter and now we are all open every Easter. BTW they do not
consider Thanksgiving a holiday either. We get regular pay.
