I, for one, think everything should be closed on Thanksgiving. Okay, gas stations I can see. Hospitals, fire, police, I get it. But everything else is non-essential. Time to get with it and close up shop for the day so your hard working employees can enjoy a day with their family.
The number of retailers going back to being closed is rising, after a trend saw a lot of companies staying open or opening early on Thanksgiving for quite a few years.
