Best Buy joins Walmart, Target in closing stores on Thanksgiving

Source: Business Insider

“Best Buy is closed for Thanksgiving. The electronics retailer confirmed to Insider Wednesday that all of its stores will be closed for the US national holiday for the second year running. Walmart and Target also announced this year that their stores would close for the holiday. Thanksgiving had become a popular shopping day for customers who wanted an early jump on deals for Black Friday (which falls the day after Thanksgiving). … But, with the growth of online shopping, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, stores are increasingly taking a more relaxed approach to the day. ‘Ultimately, consumers really want convenience and they want to get their item and get out of the store quickly. They don’t want to wait in long lines, they don’t want to wait for a store to open anymore,’ Josh Elman, senior specialist at Nasdaq Advisory Services, previously told Insider’s Kate Taylor.” (06/09/21)
