GameStop will be open on Thanksgiving this year

After several years of being one of the only retailers not opening up on Thanksgiving day, GameStop told employees today that they will be open on Thanksgiving this year.

In recent years, the company would open their doors for Black Friday sales roughly between 4 and 6 a.m. This really sucks for employees, especially those who got used to being off on Thanksgiving and just waking up early on Friday.

GameStop was doing a good thing by resisting the temptation to open on a national holiday. Hopefully the company changes this policy but I wouldn’t count on it.
