Neiman Marcus confirmed to ThinkProgress that it will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year.
As an explanation, the company said, “We hope our associates enjoy the time with family and friends.”
By contrast, other department stores Macy’s and J.C. Penney have decided once again this year to open their doors on the national holiday and begin Black Friday a day early, making some employees come to work rather than stay home with family and friends. In fact, 12 national brands will be open, including Walmart, which will be open all day, and Kmart, which will open at 6 a.m., although most of the others will open in the evening.
It just makes sense.
