Most Macy's stores will open at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving to get a jump on the Black Friday shopping.
Schedules for the stores in Toms River, Eatontown and Freehold were not immediately available on the company website.
A prepared statement from Macy's states:
"In response to interest from customers who
prefer to start their shopping early, most Macy’s stores will open at
8 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening, consistent with many other retailers.
a move to minimize the impact on associates, Macy’s began planning early
to allow associates the time to review available shifts throughout the
holiday season, including on Thanksgiving weekend, and to volunteer for
the shifts they prefer."
What do you think of the Thanksgiving evening opening? Is it great to give shoppers an early start before Black Friday or does it detract from Thanksgiving? Will you shop there on Thanksgiving? Let us know in Comments.
