If you were planning to make a trip to Walmart on Thanksgiving to get last-minute goodies, think again!

Walmart U.S. CEO John Furner has made an announcement that has caused an uproar yet again.

Will Walmarts Be Opened In Michigan?

Well, the answer is quite simple.


For the fourth consecutive year, the company will be closing its doors on Thanksgiving.

While this is great for the employees, this is not great for the general public in my opinion.

This announcement was shared through the official Walmart X (formerly known as Twitter) account.

"Thanksgiving is such a special day during a very busy season. We want you to spend that day at home with family and loved ones."

Fox Detroit shared that this has been a trend for stores to close on Thanksgiving since the COVID-19 pandemic.

"In recent years, employers continued to close down for the holiday because they wanted to thank them for their hard work during the global health crisis and give them extra time off."

What Other Stores Are Closed On Thanksgiving?

Since Walmarts are closed, I wonder what other stores are (or may be) closing on Thanksgiving.
