GameStop stores will be closed on Thanksgiving

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day in the United States where brave shoppers brave mobbed retail outlets to get huge discounts and savings on toasters to HDTV’s. The last few years have seen Black Friday shopping actually pour over into Thanksgiving day itself, with some retailers  opening doors as early as 5 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.

Well according to an article on GameInformer gaming retailer GameStop is looking to buck that trend. Mike Buskey, executive vice president of United Stores says the move is designed to give retail associates an opportunity to spend the holiday with family. “We know this is in stark contrast to what many other retailers are doing, but we are taking a stance to protect family time during this important holiday,” he says.

GameStop stores will re-open at 5 a.m. local time on Friday, November 27. GameStop and ThinkGeek will be taking orders on Thursday without interruption.
