Since Wal-Mart, Target, The Gap and numerous other retailers announced last week that they’d be open for business on Thursday, the idea of shopping on Thanksgiving has become increasingly polarized.
Nordstrom is in the purist camp, taking a stand against rushing the holidays. A photo of a store sign was posted on Nordstrom’s Facebook page stating the retailer will be closed on Thursday. It received 26,241 “likes.” “We won’t be decking our halls until Friday, Nov. 23. Why? We just like the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time. Our stores will be closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving festivities. On Friday, our doors will open to ring in the new season with style.”
