Staples reverses course, will close stores on Thanksgiving Day
Hadley Malcolm, USA TODAY October 1, 2015
Staples (SPLS) is taking a stance against a growing holiday shopping trend and will be closed on Thanksgiving this year, the company said Thursday.
The retailer has been open on Thanksgiving the past two years, but this year it says customers and employees should have the chance to stay home with family and friends. Instead, Staples will have online-only deals on the holiday. Stores will open at 6 a.m. on Black Friday.
"We want our customers and associates to enjoy Thanksgiving their own way," said Demos Parneros, Staples president of North American stores and online, in a company statement.
Recent years have seen more retailers choosing to open on Thanksgiving, and many opening earlier in the day, a trend that always draws protests from customers and employees who say the holiday should be reserved for family time. Last year, retailers including Target, Sears, Kohl's, Macy's and Best Buy opened as early as 5 p.m. or 6 p.m., which was several hours earlier than many 8 p.m. openings in 2013. Kmart and Radio Shack even opened Thanksgiving morning, at 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. respectively.
