Do you know of another store that will be closed on Thanksgiving?

I used to work in retail for many years and it is a tough job during the holidays.  I am loving that stores are closing on holidays so their employees can have time with their families.  To all who are closing up and making that happen, I applaud you!  If there is another store, especially a local one, that is planning on being closed on Thanksgiving, let me know over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio - or send me an e-mail at jessica.williams@townsquaremedia.com.
