GameStop plans to be Open on Thanksgiving this Year

Just three years ago, GameStop announced that they'd be closing down for Thanksgiving in order to show respect to their many employees in stores across the nation. With the growing push among customers to keep stores closed on Thanksgiving, it remains to be seen how much, if any, this move will benefit the company. If that wasn't already enough, Raines added the following statement, "Sometimes, we have to not let pressure from other retailers distract us from our values".

The company has not yet finalized Thanksgiving hours, but it will be a shorter day than usual, which has not helped alleviate the concerns of employees speaking to Kotaku who enjoyed the company's previous policy of not opening on Thanksgiving.

GameStop has been closed on the holiday the past several years, so this is a change.

The video game and electronics retailer has told its employees that stores will be open for this year's Thanksgiving Day holiday, according to CNNMoney. "Many of our store associates and guests have asked for this", the statement read, without specifying who or what "store associates" referred to. But this year, amid an industry shifting to digital purchasing, the company has chose to change.

It hasn't been the best year for GameStop and maybe they really think this can make a difference, but upsetting your employees is never a good call. But that's just me.
