FAIR LAWN, NJ – Need a break from eating Thanksgiving turkey, watching football, and washing the dishes? Here’s an idea: Get the family together and go for an hour or two of holiday shopping at some Bergen County stores.
While a majority of stores will remain closed on November 25, several will be open to shoppers looking for a breather in the midst of Turkey Day festivities or those hoping to start shopping on Black Friday.
However, don’t expect all of your favorite retailers to be open this year.
In June, retail giant Walmart announced it would close all stores on Thanksgiving Day this year, a move the company called a “thank you” to store workers for their hard work during the pandemic. coronavirus.
Walmart’s move follows a similar move by competitor Target, which announced in January that stores would also close this Thanksgiving.
The two giant retailers Walmart and Target are among many companies that have come under fire for staying open on Thanksgiving and preventing workers from spending the holidays with their families. In response, a growing number of retailers including Costco, Lowe’s and Hobby Lobby began to close stores over the holidays.
