The holiday shopping season is still a few months away, but video game retailer GameStop has already told employees that stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day.
This represents a change of heart for the retailer, which has been closed on the holiday for the past few years.
GameStop to open for Thanksgiving Day 2017
“To better serve our guests with their evolving holiday shopping needs, this year GameStop will open its stores for a shortened and limited time on Thanksgiving Day. Many of our store associates and guests have asked for this. We have heard their requests and are making an adjustment to our previous position on this topic.”
In March, GameStop announced that it plans to close at least 150 of its 7,500 stores worldwide amid increased competition from Amazon and big-box stores like Walmart.
