American tradition is gaining some momentum.
After searching a number of retailers on-line I have found some retailers who have issued statements of closure on Thanksgiving honoring a greater respect for a position at the upper echelon of family values for customers, and their employees.
Thanksgiving, and several other holidays celebrate America, and traditional American family values. Here are some retailers who are participating in that tradition by, closing their doors in favor of family celebrations for customers, and employees.
Please give the following listed retailers your support, and start dissing those open on holidays, forcing your discomfort in the middle of the night, and dictating holiday schedules for families.
Costco is first on the list, and among the statements issued from different retailers found their attitude to be the lead: ‘Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Nothing more complicated than that.’
Marshalls consider themselves as associate friendly. This apparently means they don’t expect them to be working on family holidays.
Barnes & Noble with respect for their booksellers, and their families.
Neiman Marcus, TJ Maxx, Burlington, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, REI, each echoing the family value sentiment.
Sam’s Club based their decision solely on customer feedback.
patagonia’s comment was simple: ‘It’s a holiday. We’re closed.’
American Girl has never opened on Thanksgiving.
Gamestop gets a good try award as Black Friday begins at Midnight. However, their Black Friday tends to manipulate the holiday for some people.
There’s a new cultural backlash, and finally the retailers are beginning to understand. We’re not going to patronize anti-American family values.
It’s up to you to resist. If you do, they will fail. I cannot more vehemently support their failure.
There are some who still don’t get it, and hopefully you’ll dismiss them from your holiday shopping season. They need to finally understand through dismal failure. The American public does not buy-in. Let them understand they must patronize us; Their customers.
You want to sell me something? You’re going to have to learn to do it at my convenience.
