GameStop Stores Closed on Thanksgiving

November 20, 2014 — Black Friday has slowly bled into the surrounding days over the course of the last decade. The phenomenon has officially spilled over into late nights on Thanksgiving Thursday for many major retailers. Not only does this disrupt the holiday for bargain desperate Americans struggling to make ends meet and desiring a Christmas complete with the right gift; but it disrupts the lives of many retail workers, too, who miss out on a recognized national holiday. That’s why GameStops across America pledged to be closed on Thanksgiving.

The CEO of GameStop, Paul Raines, confirmed this announcement while following up a quarterly review which ended on November 1, 2014. The store reports slight hits due to game delays with Assassins Creed, but overall is doing well particularly in their used games market.

With that in mind they feel secure enough to let most of their employees have a day full of turkey and relaxing before joining the rest of the retail world in Black Friday madness. There will still be many outlets opening at midnight on Black Friday. However, the remaining GameSpot reports, will be opening the next day no later than 8:00 in the morning.

If you’re interested in visiting a GameStop this Black Friday, or want to support a store who pledges to not disrupt Thanksgiving for its employees, take a look at their exclusive Black Friday sales list.
