National gaming retailer GameStop plans to keep all 6,600 stores closed on Thanksgiving Day “out of respect” for its employees and their families
good one down what other store is next hoping all. let it stay black Friday sales tradition .
The employees lives are no longer at risk, more store's should do this.
Great news for employees and customers.
I like this. Thanksgiving is really one of the few times that family can ALL get together. Family that might not get to see each other, all that often.
I'm okay with this. Let people have a day off!
I'm sure they are opening at midnight though.
Lol at getting down-votes for stating a fact. Gotta love it.
They open at 6am on black Friday, so no it isn't fact. So you certainly get a deserved down vote for lack of the ability to use google.
Last year they opened at midnight- fact!

i have to go to work at 4pm on thanksgiving day
I don't get the big deal why complain when a company or select companies stores want to open for business. Hey people buy & need to buy , people need to pay bill. People act like the last supper is being interrupted.
So people shouldn't be able to spend time with their families? Good job on being part of the problem.
It's an ordinary day like no other , no big deal . If companies want to open their doors for business then I say go for it. Besides people have Christmas and new years to spend together. Look at it this way if we allow people to not say the pledge or pay respect to our flag then losing this day should be no big deal either.
This isnt news at all. Gamestop has ALWAYS stayed closed on Thanksgiving. Gamestop only closes 2 days out the year. Thanksgiving and christmas.
Great to hear. Wish all retail would do this.
They've done this for years, this is nothing new. Only the movies, groceries, some restaurants,pharmacies, and gas stations are open on major holidays some for only a few hours.
Quite a few retail stores have started doing black early Friday by starting to open between 4-8 on Thanksgiving Thursday. Around where I live, the trend started with Wal-Mart about 4-5 years ago. It's usually the bigger retailers like best buy, wal-mart, target, etc. Otherwise, most of the malls around me open at midnight, but I think the stores within have the option to not open.
Ah. My area its a law so black Friday stores ccant open before 12:01
I think all of the stores employee even the managers should just not show up for work on black thursday. cause if it was every single employee for every store they can't fire them. plus they'll listen that way either since they can't sell squat with out them.
Good, now the employees can stuff their face with the rest of the American population.
Ya closed thanking day but then they will have to be there around 1am if the stores havent gotten ready. Plus if they are a mall store if the mall is opening early they need to open early usually.
Well that just up my Respect for GameStop!! I'll spend my money there for Black Friday this year, I don't care bout anything other then the employees getting to spend the day with there family....
People need to be home with their families on Thanksgiving. IDK why stores didn't stick with the 5am Black Friday tradition.
no one should work on holidays - except maybe fire department and hospitals... I work at a 24/7 call center and it sucks
