Unlike Recent Years, GameStop Will Be Open On Thanksgiving This Year

In recent years, GameStop bucked the common retail trend and stayed closed all day on Thanksgiving Day. That’s changing this year, as the store will be open on November 23, though only for a “shortened and limited” time instead of regular hours.

“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,” a representative for GameStop told Kotaku, which broke the news today. “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 2014, GameStop CEO Paul Raines said the move to keep its stores closed on Thanksgiving was “out of respect for our associates and their families.” He added at the time: “Sometimes, we have to not let the pressure from other retailers distract us from our values.”

In recent years, GameStop was closed on Thanksgiving Day but opened at midnight for the Black Friday shopping bonanza. GameStop will presumably compensate Thanksgiving Day employees with an increased holiday pay rate, though this is not confirmed.

GameStop’s specific hours for Thanksgiving Day 2017 have not yet been announced. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
