The company says it wants to instead shift the focus to Black Friday and online deals.

Target and Walmart have already made similar announcement, choosing to give employees the day off of work.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, Nov 25. Black Friday is the following day.

Target and other retailers were closed this Thanksgiving 2020 to help reduce crowds and flatten the curve amid the coronavirus pandemic.
