Each year Caffeinated Politics makes no bones about the importance of Thanksgiving to our nation. Equally expressed is the low regard given to those who place profit above family, friends, and national values by finding excuses for opening their doors to make some money.
Thanksgiving has meaning and purpose in America, but businesses would have us think that the foundation of the Holiday does not matter. That only the need for greed and cash matters as stores and places of business gear up for sales.
But there is good news to report, and it is a trend that has been growing over the past years. A large segment of the nation is not only rejecting the notion of shopping on this Holiday, opting instead to be with family and friends at homes coast to coast, but also voicing their opposition to the attempted destruction of Thanksgiving.
In recent years, the Black Friday craze has inched further and further into Thanksgiving. With stores opening as early as 5 P.M. on Thanksgiving Thursday, it means that festive dinners are being overshadowed by shopping frenzies. But there are still some stores that allow workers to stay home and enjoy the holiday. I offer that listing below.
These are the stores that will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2019:
Barnes & Noble
Burlington Coat Factory
