Costco (COST +0.6%), Nordstrom (JWN +0.2%), and BJ's Wholesale Club won't get pulled into the Thanksgiving Day shopping fray as they will maintain current policy to give workers the day off.

The impact on sales from the decision is hard to gauge, but the retailers think they will reap a significant PR benefit by keeping to their Black Friday tradition.
