Target CEO Brian Cornell had a gift for employees this Thanksgiving Day.
He announced that Target will permanently close on Thanksgiving Day, in 2021 and beyond.
Many celebrated this decision to let employees spend more time with their families.
One user tweeted that Target will “reap the rewards of having well paid and rested workers.”
Another said that they were pleased Target “finally made the right decision for their employees.”
Retailers like Costco and Nordstorm have always been closed on Thanksgiving Day.
Kohl’s and Walmart will be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year.
Walmart is considering following Target’s example to close every year.
Macy’s is closed, but will allow curbside pick-up at select locations.
