Walmart announced that they will be closed this Thanksgiving.
According to Walmart U.S. President and CEO John Furner announced that stores will break their tradition and close for the holiday, which they are usually open for the start of the holiday shopping season and Black Friday weekend.
Furner stated "We know holiday shopping will be different this year, and we will be managing sales events differently. Our best ideas come from our associates, and this year we have decided to close our stores on Thanksgiving Day – November 26."
Walmart stores haven't been closed on Thanksgiving since the late 1980's.
