Walmart Announces All Stores Will Be Closed on Thanksgiving This Year

Fall brings so many splendid benefits with it. Whether that’s walking through the fire-colored leaves, watching your favorite program in a cozy sweater, or pumpkin picking, it’s always a good time.

But another wonderful fall aspect is Thanksgiving, and this year Walmart is closing all stores on the special date, and here’s why…

Walmart has announced that all of its stores will be closed for Thanksgiving.

Why? Because its employees deserve to spend the holiday with their family too.

Working in retail can be extremely tough, especially when people are running around frantically during the holiday season, preparing for big meals and parties with their family and friends.

But this year, Walmart want to give back to its employees, thanking them for their hardwork and dedication by granting each and every staff member time with their loved ones instead.

And I’ve got to say, that’s a lovely gesture!

And with the retail company hitting a massive revenue of $559 billion in 2020…

It’s safe to say that they’d make a heck of a lot of money if they did stay open on Thanksgiving! So, it most certainly is an extremely nice gesture to close up shop.

Walmart’s executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Dacona Smith, also shared a statement about closing the chain store on November 25th.

“Closing our stores on Thanksgiving Day is one way we’re saying ‘thank you’ to our teams for their dedication and hard work this year. We hope everyone will take the opportunity to be with their loved ones during what’s always a special time,” she said.

But, Walmart not only gives back to their employees but their customers too, advertising that they’ll now be dimming the lights in their stores so that customers can shop in a calmer environment.

But anyway, if you’re a Thanksgiving host this year, and an avid shopper at Walmart…

You’ll most definitely have to get your shopping done early.

Happy holidays, guys!
