    FARMINGDALE, Nassau County (WABC) -- Major retail stores across our area were closed on Thanksgiving Day, experts say its part of a new trend they believe is here to stay as a direct result of the coronavirus pandemic."There's a lot of movement by the major retailers to get their customers to shop more online," said Roger Beahm, executive director of the Center for Retail Innovation at Wake Forest University. "Here's an opportunity to do that."Walmart, Best Buy, Kohl's and Macy's, which had all been open previously on Thanksgiving Day, were closed on Thursday.Beahm said 2020 changed the idea of shopping on Thanksgiving Day, a trend which began about six years ago, because many stores were closed due to the pandemic. Even if stores were open, some shoppers felt uneasy about going into crowded stores or about having to wear masks."The benefits of doing online shopping and shopping earlier started to outweigh those advantages of getting into the stores and finding the sales," he said.Target said it plans to close on every Thanksgiving Day moving forward.In addition, Beahm said closing on...

    Getty All across the United States, friends and families are gathering to watch the parade and football, dine on turkey and pumpkin pie and generally give thanks. Every November, Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of the month. This year, the holiday falls on November 25, 2021. According to History.com, a presidential proclamation from Abraham Lincoln made it a national holiday in 1863. While it was originally celebrated on the last Thursday of the month, Franklin D. Roosevelt made the controversial choice to move it up a week in 1939 to “spur retail sales.” After opposition, he signed a bill in 1941 moving it to the fourth Thursday of the month. Many businesses and financial institutions observe the holiday, closing their stores and halting their services to give employees a chance to appropriately commemorate and celebrate. Among them is the United States Postal Service. The United States Postal Service’s website lists Thanksgiving as one of its 10 observed holidays, meaning all offices will be closed. Other observed holidays are New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday,...
    Getty Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday every November, providing an opportunity to gather with friends and family to give thanks. The holiday has become synonymous with the parade, football and dog show, while Americans dine on turkey and pumpkin pie. According to History.com, Abraham Lincoln made it a national holiday to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November by presidential proclamation in 1863. Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week starting in 1939, in an attempt to “spur retail sales,” the website explained. After opposition, he signed a bill in 1941 moving it to the fourth Thursday of the month. Federal holidays often usher in business closures to allow employees to celebrate.

    Target is the latest to extend its holiday deals to earlier in the season, cementing a pandemic-era practice that has boosted retail sales nationwide. Target will no longer open its stores on Thanksgiving Day, making permanent a shift to the unofficial start of the holiday season that was suspended during the pandemic. To limit crowds in stores, retailers last year were forced to turn what had become a weekend shopping blitz into an extended event, with big holiday discounts beginning as early as October. That forced shift appears to have been fortuitous. U.S. holiday sales last November and December rose 8.2% in 2020 from the previous year, according to The National Retail Federation, the nation's largest retail trade group. The trade group predicts 2021 could shatter that record, growing between 8.5% and 10.5%. Americans, able to get the same offers over a broader timespan and relieved from some of the stresses that go hand in hand with the holidays, appeared to embrace the change, which has also resonated with workers, Target...

    Is Walgreens open on Thanksgiving? There are many reasons why you might want to visit Walgreens on Thanksgiving.

    For years, Black Friday in-store sales have crept earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving Day itself, to the consternation of those who cherish the holiday as a day of rest, and the delight of holiday deal-seekers. Not so this year, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Major retailers including Walmart, Target and Best Buy will remain closed on Thanksgiving, joining with chains like Home Depot that have held fast to a tradition of shutting down for the holiday. When the store doors do fling open on Friday morning, retailers are taking extra precautions to prevent a huge crush of crowds that could speed the spread of the virus. Most retailers have offered rolling deals, both in-store and online, throughout November and beyond, in a bid to spread out the opportunities for deal seeking.  Stores are also offering curb-side pickup and speedy delivery. For those who still want to shop in-store, retailers will require face coverings and have capacity guidelines in place to prevent crowding - and some will even offer a reservation systems for shopping.

    Getty USPS It’s Thanksgiving Day 2020 and you may be wondering if mail is going to be delivered today. Unfortunately, as with many federal holidays, numerous businesses and services are closed, including the U.S. Postal Service’s mail delivery and post offices. However, some post office lobbies may still be open for self-service kiosks that don’t need to be manned. Here’s what you need to know.Mail Will Not Be Delivered Today — Thanksgiving Day Is a USPS HolidaySince today is a federal holiday, the USPS will not be open and the U.S. Postal Service will not be delivering mail.

    Are liquor stores open on Thanksgiving? There are many reasons why you might want to visit a liquor store on Thanksgiving. Perhaps you promised to bring the bottle of wine to dinner and forgot to grab it at the grocery store before they closed, maybe you broke the bottle of vodka your great uncle Al had saved for his retirement party, or perhaps you just need some tequila to recover from this hellish year. Whatever the reason, we aren’t judging you. Unfortunately, this isn’t the place to find the answer to if your local liquor store will be open. Many liquor stores are privately owned so their hours will be made independently. It is a holiday so perhaps they’ll be closed or perhaps they’ll just close earlier than normal. Due to COVID-19, many may be closed for the time being or even for good. The best thing to do is to look up the local liquor store in your area and call or check their hours online to be sure. Most likely they’ll be happy for your business, especially with the way...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The traditional start to the holiday shopping season will look very different this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. (Photo by Alexi Rosenfeld/Getty Images) Camping out in front of stores on Thanksgiving night is out this year with several major big box stores opting to remain closed, including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy’s. Many retailers made the decision this summer because of the pandemic, after years of criticism that they should give their workers the day off to spend the holiday with their families. Instead, most retailers and shopping malls will open on Black Friday at 6 a.m., with a variety of new safety-inspired procedures. The Glendale Galleria, one of the region’s largest indoor malls, says they have installed CDC-recommended, hospital-quality MERV 13 air filters to provide hospital quality air, have implemented CDC-level cleaning of high-touch surfaces, and will monitor the number of people inside the mall in real time. Outlet malls like the Citadel Outlets along the 5 Freeway in Commerce says all their stores will...
