Holiday Shopping Hours
Toys “R” Us is opening its doors on Thanksgiving Day but not everyone is thankful for the early opportunity.
The retail toy giant has announced that it will open up for shopping at 5 PM on Thanksgiving Day and remain open until 11 PM on Black Friday. This will give people 30 full hours to cross some items off their holiday gift lists.
In the statement Toys “R” Us said that customers have voted at the door year after year and they continue to select the early opening option. But social media wasn't as big a supporter with people saying that companies should remain shut down on holidays to allow workers time with their families. Others say the extra shopping time is not as important as letting people spend time with loved ones and costs too much money when you factor in holiday pay and overtime.
But Toys “R” Us is sticking to its plan and joining other big name retailers such as Target and Macy's who also plan on opening up on Thanksgiving Day. Besides Santa can't really take care of it all himself.
