Costco Says Employees ‘Deserve’ Thanksgiving Off
At Costco, the Black Friday deals won't begin until, well, Friday. The warehouse retail chain will again stay closed on Thanksgiving this year, bucking the trend of retailers opening their doors earlier and earlier. "Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families," a Costco spokesman told the website Think Progress. The company didn't say when on Friday it would open the doors of its 468 locations. Most locations normally open at 10 a.m. on weekdays.
